Stop Police Brutality and Racial Profiling—Activists Speakout

Activists, families of those murdered and abused by police, and concerned people will gather in neighborhoods around Chicago to share their stories and to build resistance to the growing epidemic of police brutality and racial profiling. Join them!
Chicago police have a long history of brutality and corruption. For years, acts of torture and abuse against poor African Americans and Latinos have gone unchallanged, but today the tide is beginning to shift. The recent riots in Cincinnati against the murder of an unarmed Black man have put a spotlight on police abuse and racial profiling. Come to this panel speakout, listen to these stories, share your own and then help us do something to end these crimes.

Panelists will include:
VERA LOVE, Mother of Bobby Russ, unarmed Black motorist and Northwestern football player murdered by Chicago police
LOUVA BELL, Mother of Ronald Kitchen, police torture victim on Illinois Death Row
ROBIN HOBLEY, Sister of Madison Hobley, police torture victim on Illinois Death Row
LYDIA TAYLOR, Representative of the Justice Coalition of Chicago
JOEY MOGUL, Attorney, People's Law Office
LEE SUSTAR, Writer for Socialist Worker Newspaper and eyewitness to the Cincinnati riots
