The Chicago Torture Justice Memorials Project invites artists and justice seekers to submit proposals for a speculative monument to memorialize the Chicago police torture cases. Our goal is to honor the survivors of torture, their family members and the African American communities affected by the torture. The monument will also recall and honor the nearly two-decades long struggle for justice waged by torture survivors and their families, attorneys, community organizers, and people from every neighborhood and walk of life in Chicago.
Propeller Fund Grant
CTJM is pleased to have received a grant from the Propeller Fund. These funds will help to continue this work into the coming year. Propeller hosted a ceremony last night honoring the 15 winners of the 2011 Propeller Fund awards, which serve to promote informal and self-organized creative activity in the Chicago area. The awards ceremony was presented in conjunction with the Hand in Glove Conference and MDW Fair.
