Learning Garden
"Five years ago, Pilsen resident Sallie Gordon wanted to start a community garden that would unite her neighborhood around farming and other activities," DNAinfo Chicago reports.

"Ald. Danny Solis (25th) pointed her to vacant land near 21st and Sangamon streets, and in 2009, she and others started the GrowingStation, a space where residents gathered to plant everything from lettuce to jalapeno peppers in pots and large planting beds.

"But in December, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency found lead levels of nearly 26,000 parts per million - an incredibly dangerous level - just 10 feet from the garden that now has Gordon and other community members frightened about their health."

Seems like we can never have good things.

On Tuesday, May 28, the Chicago Justice Project and Union League Club of Chicago are co-sponsoring "Documenting Violence Against Women: Justice Begins with Truth."

Sexual assault and domestic violence are complicated issues that must be reported on carefully, with attention to fairness and sensitivity. Headlines today hit hard on the impact of gun violence in Chicago neighborhoods despite the fact that domestic violence cases are significantly more frequent. Investigative reporters who attempt to tackle the topic collect brutal photographs, intimate narratives and harrowing tales but often struggle to find outlets for reporting on these difficult news events that dominate the Chicago's calls to 911 for services.

Join Steve Edwards, from the Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago, as he moderates a discussion among journalists, advocates for survivors, and criminal justice leaders, on a discussion about violence against women, its news coverage, and the potential for increased data access to impact the public discussion

The media plays a vital role in shaping how society understands and confronts social issues. News organizations, daunted by budget constraints, shrinking staffs and reader interests, strive to cover violence against women in a responsible manner but challenges remain.

After watching a small number of high profile, ultra-violent domestic violence cases monopolize news coverage in recent years, journalists, law enforcement and judicial leaders recognize the need to assess better ways to tell the full story.

The public benefits from coverage of these sensitive crimes. Criminal justice agencies collect vital data that can be aggregated to protect privacy and to identify patterns and trends. Taxpayer-funded services generate valuable evidence in the data they collect that can be used to inform communities, aid victim advocates, and improve services. We invite you to join our public discussion on the role data access can have on violence against women in our city.

The program will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
