The Restorative Justice Committee presents Colette Payne to speak. Colette is an organizer, student, mother and grandmother. In 2015 Colette joined the delegation to assess women’s prisons in Illinois, becoming the first formerly-incarcerated woman to serve in this role in the United States. Since 2014, Colette leads the Visible Voices program for the Chicago Legal Advocacy for Incarcerated Mothers (CLAIM). She also serves as the Community Organizer for Cabrini Green Legal Aid. In her role, she helps engage those directly impacted by the criminal justice system to become agents of change and creators of solutions.
