A community is democratic only when the humblest and weakest person can enjoy the highest civil, economic, and social rights that the biggest and most powerful possess. A. PHILIP RANDOLPH
Launched in early 2014, Right on Justice (ROJ), is a two-year initiative convened by Albany Park Neighborhood Council (APNC), the Adler School of Professional Psychology's Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice (IPSSJ), and Woods Fund Chicago. The goal is to identify and dismantle punitive policies at the school and community level and advance restorative justice alternatives to school push out and criminalization of communities of color, reforming the justice system, and building capacity for restorative justice solutions.
