 Northside Transformative Law Center is a space where community members, families, and professionals come together to advocate and accompany individuals who are navigating the criminal justice system. We also provide a safe space for healing and restoration for incarcerated and reentering citizens and their families.  

You will find our space filled with art, words, and other objects of significance. We hope to facilitate an awareness that at every point in an individual’s journey both physical and spiritual they are leaving something behind. 

in the news...

 

On June 14, 2017 a lawsuit was filed on behalf of Black Lives Matter seeking federal government oversight of the Chicago Police Department: 

“For years and continuing to this day, the City of Chicago has employed a pattern and practice of excessive force that adversely affects all people in Chicago, but that disproportionately and intentionally targets black and Latino individuals.”
