Systemic racism and police violence in Chicago affect us all (in different ways):
- How does racist policing impact on youth of color communities in Chicago?
- How can the Chicago police be reformed or even abolished?
- How can the 4 million dollars spend daily on policing by the city of Chicago be better spent on public schools, education, arts and culture, and communities?
- How are activist groups like BYP100, Assata's Daughters, and We Charge Genocide organizing for change?
- How does the larger climate of racism, colonialism, and police violence impact students and faculty at SAIC?
- How can you participate and/or be an ally?
Organized by Social Fabrics 2016, a class in the Fiber and Material Studies department.
