Join us on Monday August 1st at 6 PM to demand an end to the torture at Menard Prison. Our loved ones held at Menard have experienced harassment, mistreatment, neglect, abuse, repression, and, in the case of Michael Jefferson and many more, death at the hands of Menard staff and the Illinois Department of “Corrections” (IDOC). We are calling on IDOC Director Rob Jeffreys and Governor Pritzker to act NOW to address these conditions and bring our loved ones home!

Our demands are:
Transfer Michael Minnifield, Isaiah Brady, and Chaz Thrailkill out of Menard immediately!
Conduct an independent investigation into the conditions at Menard!
Pass the Isolated Confinement Restriction Act HB 3564 NOW!
Hold guards who have abused our loved ones accountable!
Shut Down Menard!

We ask all those who are able to come out and join us as we bring these demands forward in a demonstration. We need every person who can to join us in raising these demands, until Rob Jeffreys and JB Pritzker ACT to address the needs of our loved ones, and until this crisis has the attention it needs!
