The Chicago Torture Justice Center (CTJC) opened its doors in May 2017 and has been incorporated with the State of Illinois since December 2015. Currently, the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago is CTJC’s fiscal sponsor. CTJC received 501(c)(3) status in 2018.
A portion of our funding comes from the Chicago Department of Health, and the rest can be attributed to grants and our powerful community. We are grateful to partner with foundations whose support has made or continues to make our work possible:
- Chicago Community Trust
- Conant Family Foundation
- Crossroads Fund
- 8th Day Center for Justice
- The Field Foundation of Illinois
- Lloyd A. Fry Foundation
- Polk Brothers Foundation
- Woods Fund Chicago
Community Sustainers – Thank You!
From the collective dreaming and organizing that opened the Center, we have been privileged to be held in a deeply loving community. We are grateful to everyone who makes CTJC’s trauma-informed healing and collective organizing real with their generous donations.
