Response to Police Violence -- With Members of Chicago Torture Justice Memorials
Friday, February 3, 2017 - 4:00pm
Digital Arts Research Center (DARC) 108

Chicago Torture Justice Memorials (CTJM) is a collective of artists, activists, and attorneys that organized for, and won historic Reparations legislation for African Americans tortured by Chicago police. Four members of CTJM discuss the social and historical context of police torture in Chicago and how the group achieved a historic victory in securing reparations for survivors of torture and their families. CTJM members will also facilitate a workshop on organizing for racial justice and against police violence now, engaging art, social media, collaboration, direct action, and other temporal- and location-specific strategies.
