The CCJDC Residents’ Art Exhibit was a hit! The art supplies made possible by Partnership For A Safer Cleveland’s generous donation were distributed to the four living units, and, volunteers who have an interest in hands on art projects tailored for every youth residing within our secured facility. In addition to the public visitors checking out the art exhibit, staff from various Court Services departments brought their colleagues downstairs to see the art work. They also voiced positive comments about the art pieces and talented youth. Below are some pictures of the art. We are honored to have been a part of this collaborative effort!
Mike Walker, Executive Director of PSC, will be participating in a HOT TALK on 5/8/18 from 12-1pm! It is held at the CMBA Conference Center or you can watch live via facebook.... more INFO BELOW!
In light of the Parkland school shooting and other recent examples of school and community gun violence, the CMBA is exploring this issue from all sides at our upcoming Hot Talks live panel discussion
• Do guns make our communities safer or more at risk?
• Should teachers be armed as a protective measure?
• Are more gun control laws needed?
As a reminder, our Hot Talks include brief opening remarks by our presenters and then the conversation will be open for a question and answer period. Audience participation is encouraged as a model for civil discourse in the community. Bring your questions, your views, your criticisms - whatever you've got - and come meet us at the bar for Hot Talks. No need to RSVP. Each talk is open to the public and hosted as a brown bag lunch event. If you have any questions, please contact the CMBA at (216) 696-3525.
Why Hot Talks?
The CMBA’s mission begins with five simple words: “To promote the rule of law.” To believe in the rule of law means that we believe all people and all institutions are subject to and accountable to the laws of our land. It also means that we believe all laws must be both fairly applied and fairly enforced.
One way we strive to fulfill our mission is by creating opportunities for the open, civil exchange of ideas and viewpoints across a vast array of subjects – both for our members and the community at large. Hot Talks offers an opportunity for civil conversations about these subjects.
What will these talks look like?
We will start with 2-3 lead speakers providing introductory information about the topic. (15-20 mins)
Then comes the Q&A. Free form. (30-40 mins)
Our speakers will field questions and provide their perspectives. Sometimes they’ll agree. Sometimes they won’t. Sometimes the audience will agree; sometimes it won’t. The point here is to take real time developments and talk about them in an environment that is conducive to genuine, respectful give-and-take.
No, we won’t be catering to the left … or to the right. No, we won’t be offering the CMBA’s view on whether a policy announcement is good or bad. Yes, we will be giving people an opportunity to learn more about the legal news of the day in an environment that will enable us to discuss, debate and ultimately become better educated about the changes coming out of Washington D.C. and elsewhere – changes that will affect all of us.
Our doors are open to all who wish to engage in civil discourse.
