This Macon County group is helping young crime victims. Here's how.

"Paid for with a grant from the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, Macon County HEALS brings together agencies including the probation office, Growing Strong Sexual Assault Center, the Macon County Sheriff, Decatur Police Department, the state's attorney, Crossing Healthcare and Child 1st.

The needs of the victim are always uppermost, more than the needs of prosecutors and courts or anyone else. While it's important to seek justice for crime victims, Macon County HEALS' main goal is to help the victims and put them first."

Macon County HEALS is a clearinghouse for young crime victims up to the age of 25, a place where they can access whatever help or support they need to begin

COVID 1 Year Later: Impact On Domestic Violence Is Hard To See

ICJIA research on the pandemic's impact on victim service provision found that during Illinois' stay-at-home period from March to June 2020, victim-service providers pivoted quickly from in-person services to increased telephone and hotline work. They also sent more clients to off-site shelters, like hotels, to avoid congregate living situations.

This story is part of a special episode of Sound Ideas airing March 12, marking the one-year anniversary of COVID's arrival in McLean County. Find more

Jane Bolin was a trailblazing attorney who became the first African American female judge in the United States, serving on New York's Family Court for four decades. Jane Bolin made history over and over:

✅ She was the first Black woman to graduate from Yale Law School. ✅ The first Black woman to join the New York City Bar Association.
✅ The nation’s first Black female judge.

In 1939, New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia appointed her a family court judge. As the first Black female judge in the country, she made national headlines.

For the compassionate Bolin, the job was a good fit. She didn’t wear judicial robes in court to make children feel more at ease and committed herself to seeking equal treatment for all who appeared before her, regardless of their economic or ethnic background.

She served on the bench for 40 years. Before her death at age 98, she looked back at her lifetime of shattering glass ceilings.

Deanna Van Buren is co-founder of Designing Justice + Designing Spaces, a nonprofit harnessing the power of design and development to transform people and communities.

After starting her first company in 2011, she became a national leader in formulating and advocating for restorative justice centers, a radical transformation of justice architecture. Her passion for exploring the intersection of design and culture has been fueled by her work as a design lead on urban design, institutional, and education projects in the Bay Area, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Van Buren frequently uses the word “infrastructure” rather than architecture when discussing her work. “When you think at a systems-wide level, it includes housing, sources of economic access, education access,” she says. For Raphael Sperry, president of Architects/Designers/Planners for Social Responsibility, this systemic approach is part of what distinguishes the firm: “Their work challenges the racism of mass incarceration head-on.”

Recent projects with DJDS include the Syracuse Peacemaking Center in New York and Restore, a multi-use hub for restorative justice and workforce development in East Oakland, California.

Governor JB Pritzker

Throughout Illinois history, Black lawmakers have been at the forefront of shaping public policy in a more equitable direction for our next generation of leaders. Today I want to recognize the barrier breakers and their historic contributions to the fiber of our state.

Let me begin with heartfelt appreciation to my partner in this administration and Illinois’ first Black Lt. Gov: Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton. A fierce advocate for restorative justice throughout her career, Juliana has been integral in leading our JEO Initiative to build stronger communities.

As former lawmakers, Toi Hutchinson and Christian Mitchell are continuing their public service in the Governor's Office as top advisors. From creating a new cannabis industry to leading agencies spanning public safety, infrastructure and environment, they're putting equity at the core.

Over the past year, Black leaders have risen to the top ranks of the Illinois legislature: Speaker Emanuel "Chris" Welch as the first Black Speaker of the House and State Senator Kimberly A. Lightford as the first Black Senate Majority Leader. Their voices are instrumental in building a fairer and resilient Illinois.

And Carol Moseley Braun – a champion for education reform and 1st Black woman to serve in the U.S. Senate – and Cecil Partee – an advocate for fair employment and 1st Black Senate President – have laid the groundwork for generations to come. May their vision inspire us all.
