At the end of May we taught two Intro to Prison Abolition workshops to the amazing young people at Brighton Park Neighborhood Council‘s annual Youth Summit at the University of Illinois at Chicago, in conjunction with the #NoCopAcademy campaign. Last week, we facilitated our first ever Trans and Queer Resistance to Policing workshop entirely in Spanish to community members at PASO West Suburban Action Project in Melrose Park, with the support of Arianna Salgado. It was an important challenge—one which was met with enthusiasm from the community—and we look forward to offering more bilingual workshops in the near future.
Starting at the close of June, we’ll be partnering with Engage Chicago to offer a series of summer workshops and site visits to undergraduates at Northwestern University and other local colleges, focused on community organizing and gaining a deeper understanding of the wide range of resistance movements happening across our city. More info around what those workshops will look like, and the specific organizations we’ll be visiting, will be coming next month.
There are performances, workshops, and other exciting events coming up in the fall that we’ll be announcing here as the dates approach. Sign up so you can be the first to know! If you have any of your own questions or inquiries in the meantime, feel free to contact us here.
Thank you for your continued support!
