Over the past few months, protests and campaigns to address police violence have intensified and grown. Chicago has a long history of organizing against police torture and violence. In this historical moment, however, we need more people to join existing efforts and to launch new organizations/projects that can contribute to a larger movement to end oppressive policing and to dismantle the prison industrial complex.

Join members of We Charge Genocide, Project NIA along with other organizations and unaffiliated individuals for a day-long discussion about strategies to end police violence on Saturday, January 24th from 9 to 5:30 p.m.

Workshops and discussion topics will include the role of ICE and deportations in our communities, how to create more sustainable citywide jail support, the creation of a permanent revolving local bail fund, the role of art in movement-building & resistance, youth leadership within the movement, the impact(s) of oppressive policing on women and trans people, and more….

The conference will be offered at no cost to participants HOWEVER pre-registration will be REQUIRED. Signing up via Facebook as attending this conference WILL NOT be sufficient. Everyone will need to register directly here.

Childcare will be available at the event for those who need it and we are making other accessibility arrangements as well.
