We Are Witnesses: Chicago

Thursday, September 12, 2019

The Marshall Project and WBEZ present the launch of We Are Witnesses: Chicago. Giving voice to crime victims and perpetrators; police offices and the families of people in jail; prison guards and judges and residents of violent neighborhoods, these videos specifically involve diverse Chicago communities in a real conversation about criminal justice. A selection of films from the new series will be shown, followed by a panel discussion with the Witnesses introduced by Shannon Heffernan from WBEZ and moderated by Carroll Bogert, President of The Marshall Project.

The panelists include:

Cleopatra and Nathaniel Pendleton- Parents of Hadiya Pendleton, who was killed by gun violence.

Carrie Steiner - Former Chicago police officer and clinical psychologist

Xavier McElrath-Bey - Formerly incarcerated as a juvenile

Dr. Nneka Jones - Former warden of Cook County Jail
