Chicago Torture Justice Center is seeking a Clinical Director
About the center: The Chicago Torture Justice Center (CTJC) is a community center for Chicago police torture survivors. CTJC was established as a result of a historic Reparations Ordinance passed by the Chicago City Council in May 2015. The Reparations Ordinance provides redress for racially-motivated police torture orchestrated by Chicago Police Department Commander, Jon Burge between 1972-1991. Over 120 predominantly African-American men were tortured into giving false confessions by Burge and officers under his command. These men spent decades wrongfully imprisoned and were denied their freedom; even after evidence proved that they were tortured.
Below is a short blurb describing the general position: The Chicago Torture Justice Center is searching for a new Clinical Director to join our team. The Clinical Director will provide clinical services through a community counseling and politicized healing model to survivors of police violence, supervise the Center's clinical team, and provide leadership in developing and sharing the unique therapeutic model of CTJC.
