In the office’s continuing efforts to enhance community involvement and awareness, Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, along with members of the office’s Advisory Councils, presented a one day seminar aimed at informing and empowering community organizations.

“Educating the Community: Resources, Awareness and Prevention,” was the theme for the 4th annual Unity Conference, held in commemoration of Unity Month.  The conference gave participants the opportunity to learn about some of the State’s Attorney’s innovative and creative approaches to reach out to parents, children and community members by participating in workshops on topics such as combating drugs and gangs, the effects of trauma in our schools and communities and restorative justice for juveniles.   

Also during the conference, State’s Attorney Alvarez presented the Community Empowerment Award to Phillip Jackson, Executive Director of the Black Star Project for their innovative programs that engage and inspire students, parents and communities to improve educational outcomes. 

The Unity Conference was held September 12th at the UIC Forum in Chicago.
