Erika Harold is an anti-LGBTQ, anti-woman candidate for Illinois Attorney General – her views are out of touch with Illinois values.
As Erika and her supporters enter the City Club we want to welcome them with a 𝙍𝘼𝙄𝙉𝘽𝙊𝙒 of pro-women and pro-LGBTQ folks. Bring signs, wear a shirt of your favorite progressive organization (or any color of the rainbow) and help show Erika that hate is NOT an Illinois value.

Illinois needs an Attorney General who understands that our laws should support the health and well-being of all of us. At a time when human rights and freedoms are under attack, we must elect an Attorney General who will lead the fight to protect our rights.

On October 29, 2018, Reed will be granted a new evidentary hearing. The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression calls on all people to join with Gerald Reed’s large family and community of friends to pack the court room and demand his immediate release. Join us on the 29th at 1PM at the Cook County Criminal Courthouse (26th and California), room 604 to free Gerald Reed!

On October 3, 1990, Gerald Reed, 27, was arrested and questioned about a double murder by Detectives Michael Kill and Victor Breska at Area 3 Homicide, members of the notorious “Midnight Crew” of torturer Jon Burge. They beat him and kicked him repeatedly, and broke a metal rod that was in his right thigh along with the surgical screws that held it in place, causing him excruciating pain. The rod had been surgically placed years before to repair his thigh-bone, which had been shattered by a gunshot.

Reed signed a false confession to end the beatings, but that did not stop the torture. For 27 years, Reed has been incarcerated for a crime he did not commit and the extensive damage to his leg has not been properly taken care of. Learn more about his case by visiting caarpr.org/freegeraldreed
