JOIN US to explore the use of creative activism in the struggle for justice
in the Chicago police torture cases. Civil rights attorney Larry Kennon
will host this dialogue with torture survivors, artists and activists.
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.
Sponsored by the Chicago Torture Justice Memorials, Black People Against
Police Torture, and The Propeller Fund
