This group is hosted by Indivisible IL9 at 10am CT every Sunday. This call is open to current and new members of Indivisible IL9. We value your voice and your engagement and ask that first time callers go through a friendly pre-call orientation at 9:45am to ensure you have a smooth onboarding to our video chat platform and to our current conversations. 

Our Organizing Statement

We are committed to examining the ways in which systemic racism affects us all. In this group, we acquire the tools to dismantle racism and use those tools to make a more just world.

Note: Please join before 10am. No one will be admitted to the call after 10:10am.


  • What is said here stays here, but what is learned here leaves here. 
  • “Three before me” → If you have spoken, allow three other people to speak before you.
  • Come on time: join the call before 10am. Call closes at 10:10am.
  • Lean in to discomfort; we challenge ourselves and each other here. If/when we feel defensive, we agree to consult White Fragility and the Rules of Engagement to determine if our discomfort is racially based. 
  • Do any readings to the best of our ability ahead of the meeting


This week’s meeting will be lead by Judy Gall, a regular in our group. The topic is Restorative Justice, particularly as it relates to Chicago Public Schools. Here is a message and a list of resources from Judy:

When focusing on restorative practices in Chicago Public Schools, I first like to acknowledge Patricia “Paz” Zamora who introduced and developed the initial restorative practices in CPS in the mid-90’s when she worked with me at Alternatives, Inc.  We started from a community framework with youth and expanded to include school personnel and community members.
