The Evanston Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association and the Evanston Police Department are proud to host a Community Peace Circle on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 7:00 P.M. at the Levy Senior Center located at 300 Dodge Ave. The intended goal of the Community Peace Circle is to continue having an open dialogue between the police and community, with targeted topics being safety and community relationships.

Peace circles have been in existence throughout history. Peace circles are largely based on talking circles and carry with them the history of cultural traditions from all over the world. Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island, Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda, to name a few, used peace circles for conflict-resolution.

This will be a structured, facilitated conversation with residents and police with limited space available.

Registration is required to participate. If you have questions or would like to participate please call Officer Tanya Jenkins in Community Strategies at (847) 859-7841 or email: tjenkins@cityofevanston.org
