  • Common Hour: Police Brutality in Chicago (+)

    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall

    Produced by Community TV Network in 1995, “The End of the Nightstick: Confronting Police Brutality in Chicago” is a video by filmmakers Peter Kuttner, Cyndi Moran, and Eric Scholl about the ongoing abuse of power by the police force, specifically the case of Jon Burge, as well as institutionalized racism. Some of these wrongfully convicted victims have just recently been released from prison and, sadly, this film is still very much relevant today as only the names and faces have changed. With the recent wrongful deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, the media has brought light to the injustices minorities in the U.S. face. Community TV Network has re-released this short film increase awareness surrounding this issue. It is important to bring this video back into the present to demonstrate the unfortunate continuity of the problem and stimulate change.

  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall

    The Social Exclusion Simulation is a group experiential learning tool for increasing understanding of complex systems and how the structural barriers that comprise them work to block access to key rights, resources and opportunities for some members of society, rendering them “socially excluded.”

    2.5 C.E.U.’s will be offered to psychologists, counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and interested non-psychologists. Please indicate this on your reservation request.

    Participants include students, faculty and staff of the Adler School, members of the greater Chicagoland community, anyone interested in learning more about social exclusion. Participants adopt authentic Chicago-based case histories of formerly incarcerated women and are tasked with re-entering society – finding a place to live, a job, healthcare and other necessities – in the face of structural and systemic barriers.

    Participant outcomes include:

    An increased understanding of what structural and systemic barriers are and how they work to undermine opportunity and access.
    Increased appreciation of practical limits of personal responsibility, agency, and choice.
    Increased motivation to adopt attitudinal and behavioral changes in pursuit of social change.
    Increased empathy for other marginalized groups.
    Apprehend the shock and disappointment about roadblocks of re-entry.
