Community Safe Zone

The Community Safe Zone consists of a 10-block radius from 59th St. to 63rd St. between California Ave. and Western Ave. with a primary objective of building strong and sustainable community relationships as a method to promote peace and prevent violence.

The Safe Zone initiative is comprised of several programs including Project Restore, Project Green Reentry, IMAN’s Criminal Justice Reform Advocacy, and a budding partnership between the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs (JCUA), the Southwest Organizing Project (SWOP), and IMAN to address Chicago Lawn’s foreclosure crisis.
