Saturday March 21, 6pm
Fundraiser Hosted by Stop Mass Incarceration Network Chicago
Wicker Park Lutheran Church
1500 N Hoyne Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60622

Stolen Lives Fundraising Dinner 

$20 general admission, $10 for students and unemployed

A fundraising dinner to honor families whose loved ones were killed by police. Funds raised will contribute to the thousands of dollars needed to spread the word and organize people into action for April 14th.
With only a few days left to get out to friends, families and others who can be invited to this special evening to honor the Stolen Lives Families. The quote below, from the letter by a student, captures the essence and power this event can have to people.

“As the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, and other activists, prepare for a national day of action against police brutality on April 14th, we face many challenges, but all of them pale in comparison to the hardship and loss that you have endured, and whenever we find our motivation and resolve waning, it is to you that our thoughts turn -- not only how each of you has lost something precious and irrecoverable, not only how you never saw any justice done for that loss, but how you still struggle against intimidation and repression every day to raise your voice on behalf of the loved ones that were stolen from you.”

Our charge is to celebrating these voices, raise funds and building support for A14.  What follows is a basic out line (which can be adjusted) but can give us an overview on what needs to be done to have the most successful dinner/program possible. Please get in touch with me if there are questions or adjustments that need to be made or others who want to volunteer. I will be calling to make sure we are all on the same page and if there more ideas from all of you. Jessie 773-329-5014

Hear Carl Dix Today, Sunday March 15 2pm,
Carl Dix

"Police Terror, The Savage Oppression of Black People and The Revolutionary Way to End All These Horrors"

March 15,  2-4 pm
Kleo Center
119 E. Garfield (55th Street)
(the CTA Green Line Garfield (55th St) stop is 2 blocks east)

Join/spread this event on Facebook

Carl Dix, long-time revolutionary leader and the co-founder of Stop Mass Incarceration with Cornel West, is in Madison right now at a rally of hundreds of high school students protesting the police murder of Tony Robinson. CNN is covering it live. This outpouring of defiant outrage is exactly what's needed in Madison and everywhere, today and on April 14. See the SMIN national website What Should April 14 look like? Like Madison on March 9 and today!

Carl will talk about "Police Terror, The Savage Oppression of Black People and The Revolutionary Way to End All These Horrors". And he will talk about the national plan for April 14, the day to Shut Down Business As Usual to re-seize the initiative to STOP the police murder of Black and Brown people and the whole genocidal program of mass incarceration.

At this moment when the powers-that-be are trying to shut down the resistance that rose up so powerfully last fall, Carl's revolutionary message can be an important key to unlock the anger, determination, and desire to end the abuses that continued to beat strongly in the hearts of the many thousands who stood up and many more who were jolted awake by the uprising about the constant terror and demeaning of Black people.

Here is Carl's statement on Madison & A14 

Here is a link to a New Message from Carl Dix on #ShutDownA14
