On March 15th, over 500 people marched and rallied with Chicago youth to put pressure on our politicians to take action to address climate change.

On May 3rd, we are striking again. We cannot lose any traction we have gained since the last strike. We need to make this strike bigger, lets shoot for a thousand people!

Students choosing to sacrifice their own education and miss school for a day gets people’s attention.

Meet at the southwest corner of Grant Park(or where the lolla main stage usually is) at 11AM on Friday, May 3rd. We will then march to Federal Plaza where a rally will be held featuring many speakers.

Join this fight. People of all ages are welcome, it is appropriate for little children too! We find that the youngest children who come make the biggest impact!

STOP the Fraternal Order of Police’s Racist Agenda!

May 6, 2019 - 4 PM - 6 PM

The Fraternal Order of Police is a racist organization that seeks to shield their members from accountability, stop all reforms to America’s racist criminal legal system and protect the pocketbooks of its membership.

The crime and violence in poor Black and brown communities are the direct result of slavery, Jim Crow and modern-day racist institutions.

We denounce racist policing and discriminatory incarceration practices, which are the wrong (and obviously racist) responses to crime and violence. We demand investment in Black and brown communities.
