Lessons from the Trauma Center Campaign

November 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In 2015, after five years of community pressure, the University of Chicago agreed to open an adult level one trauma center. For years, young Black people on the Southside had been shot blocks from U of C’s state of the art facilities, and then died on long ambulance rides to the Northside of the city. Thus, this was a historic victory holding a “private” institution accountable to its surrounding community. The Trauma Center Campaign was led by young Black people on the Southside for young Black on the Southside. Three of the young Black women activists who were at the forefront of the campaign— Veronica Morris Moore, Tweak Harris, and Victoria Crider— will share lessons from the Trauma Center Campaign. For law students interested in social justice, this will be an opportunity to learn and reflect on how to work under the leadership of communities, how to come up with creative solutions for complicated municipal issues, and more.
