Hip Hop and Restorative Justice: Youth Leadership from Circles & Ciphers of Chicago

Special 25 minute short form interview

We were lucky to have the opportunity to sit down with Marko, Akeem and Stephan, all a part of Circles and Ciphers, located in North Chicago, during the 7th Conference on Community and Restorative Justice hosted by the NACRJ and by RJ Colorado, in Denver (June 2019)

Circles & Ciphers is a hip-hop infused restorative justice organization led by and for young people impacted by violence. Through art-based peace circles, education, and direct action we collectively heal and work to bring about the abolition of the prison-industrial complex.

In this short interview, Marko, Akeem and Stephan all share insights into how creativity and hip-hop answer to serious gaps in society, and how circles support strengthening youth empowerment and community. Truly inspiring.
