Help us tell the story of torture in Chicago......

Come to our OPEN HOUSE and find out everything you need to know to submit a proposal for a speculative monument that memorializes police torture in Chicago and the struggle against it.

JOIN US as we launch our fabulous new website including:
-- an archive of media history on the Burge torture cases
-- video testimonials by torture survivors
-- sample memorials
-- and more

-- a special performance by FM Supreme will illustrate the power of poetry as a memorial to the torture survivors

-- a short presentation by NEIU students will show how class projects can result in original memorials

-- a WANTS and NEEDS bulletin board will provide concrete ways for you to get involved with this project from outreach to fundraising to setting up roving exhibitions

-- an opportunity to mingle with activists, artists and educators over tasty refreshments


Over 100 African American men were tortured by white Chicago police officers under former Commander Jon Burge. We remember this history to say never and again and to work towards justice for Chicago torture survivors.

All proposals submitted will be featured in roving city-wide exhibitions or a dedicated website.

Deadline for proposals EXTENDED to MAY 19, 2012
