“As the first Black woman to lead this organization, I’m honored to introduce our focus on narrative change.”Jhmira Alexander, President & Executive Director of Public Narrative
Building on the organization’s past work, Public Narrative is repositioning its approach to engaging community voices on public health, public safety, and public education. Our Celebration of Change will feature conversations with partners in each of these areas:
- Public Education: The Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance Chicago, powered by Thrive Chicago
- Public Health: The Chicago Community Media and Research Partnership (CCMRP) with Northwestern University’s Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC)
- Public Safety: The Youth District Advisory Council (YDAC) Leadership Institute under the direction of the Chicago Police Department’s Office of Restorative Strategies
