Event description
Join us for "We Are More" -- the Center's 3rd Annual Benefit Reception

About this Event

Saturday, July 20, 2019 “We Are More” our 3rd Annual Benefit Reception -- hosted by Director of Community Affairs with the Chicago Police Department, Robin Robinson -- to benefit the Darren B. Easterling Center for Restorative Practices (the Center) is being held at the Lawndale Christian Conference Center's Skyline Conference Room located at 3750 W. Ogden Ave.

The central theme of the evening is growth—the growth of the organization, the relationships that have grown out of its development and perhaps most importantly, the potential we all have to grow in the face of difficulty if we choose to believe we are more than the worst thing we've ever done or experienced.

Our guest speaker for the evening is Wilder Kendric "Ken" Berry, senior litigation paralegal with Winston & Strawn, LLP , who in 2000 was acquitted after spending eight years in prison as a result of a wrongful conviction. Mr. Berry, by choosing to rewrite his own narrative serves as a true example of the Center's 2019 theme -- "We Are More".

Additionally, many of Chicago’s staunchest advocates in the areas of restorative justice and trauma and victim centered recovery, who are committed to ending the cycle of gun-violence, are expected to attend. The evening will also include a jazz trio, hearty hor d’oeuvres and an exciting silent auction!

All proceeds will support the Center’s Annual Fund, making it possible for the organization to continue providing trauma centered services to the communities it serves.

Thank You To Our Corporate Sponsor
