Conversations of Consequence: Hurt People Hurt People


August 11, 2020    
7:00 pm

ConTextos uses the power of the written word in storytelling to promote healing in the most hurt areas of Chicago and the Americas.

Join us for a Conversation of Consequence with Debra Gittler, Founder and Executive Director of ConTextos, as she discusses how her Jewish values inform her work with young people affected by street violence, poverty and trauma in Chicago, in schools, reentry, workforce development and Cook County Jail.

Debra, joined by her colleagues Johnny Page and Darrius McCarty, will talk with Rabbi Michael Siegel and Jonathan Eig about the potential of writing and storytelling to promote healing amongst writers, and the power of story to build bridges and complicate prevailing assumptions.
