100 Black Men of Madison to Receive The North Star Award

 

The Northside Planning Council (NPC) will stage the North Star Award Ceremony, 5:30 p.m., 4 December at the Warner Park Community Recreation Center.

At that event, the 100 Black Men of Madison will become the recipient of the Community/Neighborhood Award for efforts of Northside community development and improvement.

The NPC began in 1993 with City support, and has grown into one of Madison's most successful and effective community organizations. The NPC works with diverse community leaders from 26 neighborhood business, senior, faith, school and community center groups. Citizen leaders, supported by professional capacity-building staff, assess the needs of the Northside community, develop partnerships and actively lead advocacy and organizing efforts to meet our community's goals and address issues.

For 20 years, NPC has partnered with the City to transform an unorganized, socially fragmented and politically ignored community into one of Madison's most engaged, informed and best-organized communities with a strong identity and high quality of life.

JR Sims, Chair of the 100 Black Men of Madison Public Relations Committee, stated, "We are humbled and flattered by this tremendous acknowledgement."

The Dane County Community Justice Restorative Court is based on the platform of restorative justice, (RJ). RJ is an approach to justice that focuses on the needs of the victims and the offenders, as well as the involved community. Instead of satisfying abstract legal principles or punishing the offender, victims take an active role in the process, while offenders are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions, "to repair the harm they've done."
