  • Free Darrell Fair: Re-open His Case
    Darrell has taken numerous legal actions against his incarceration on the basis of police torture. Most recently, his case was heard by the IL Supreme Court. They upheld a lower court's decision that Darrell did not pass the threshold to prove he qualified for support under the Torture Inquiry Relief Commission. We are calling on Kim Foxx and the State’s Attorney Office to re-open Darrell’s case. Sign the petition to encourage her to meet with lawyers from the Exoneration Project to discuss Darrell Fair’s case.

  • Implement House Bill 1470: Enforce measurable standards of living in the Northwest Detention Center
    House Bill 1470 will establish measurable standards that must be met upon unannounced inspections of the Department of Health, as the North West Detention Center currently has none. When detainees currently living in the NWDC facility were asked what these measure standards should be, their answers were disheartening, as it was clear basic human standards of living were not being met. Detainees requested laundry services be available at least twice a week and that the clothes they received be new and their own. Detainees have reported that the clothes they receive in the facility are soiled and often mixed with other detainees' clothes. Standards for personal hygiene still need to be met, as detainees are given a travel-size toothbrush, which individuals have stated only holds up for a few brushes. Detainees repeatedly noted the consideration for better treatment. Responses were “Better treatment, we are not animals” and “Humane and dignified treatment.” Detainees are told as they enter the detainment facility that it is not a prison, yet their personal belongings are confiscated. It’s not a prison, yet they are held against their will for years without seeing a day in court. While the Washington state legislature passed a law mandating the facility's closure, this was later deemed unenforceable. So, we must ensure that detainees living in this facility have access to sustainable living conditions that are regularly inspected and enforced.

  • Defend Chicago’s Status as a Sanctuary City
    Chicago has a history of standing up and organizing against harmful federal policies. Fueled by organizing efforts, the city’s first Sanctuary policies were heralded by Mayor Harold Washington in response to the Republican Administration’s attack on immigrants during the 1980s. Building on that legacy, a multi-racial coalition came together under Mayors Emmanuel and Lightfoot to push back against the criminalization of communities of color and raids against immigrant communities being propelled by Trump. Sanctuary is a fact that’s been hard-fought and won here in Chicago. It’s only gotten stronger over the years across different waves of migration to the city. Now as we welcome new migrants to the city, Alderman Raymond Lopez and others sympathetic to Trump and Abbott's policies are turning their backs on this history and sowing division in our communities. In the last month, he has introduced legislation to repeal the Welcoming City Ordinance and take away resources from migrant families. They’re toying with the kind of legislation needed to protect our communities at risk of being targeted and from deportation. That’s not who we are or the commitments we’ve made to keeping families together and building stronger communities. We urge the city to honor its sanctuary history and status by saying NO to attempts to rollback protections and continue to defend Chicago as a Sanctuary city.

  • Stop requiring driver licenses from students to receive a parking permit !
    PXU serves a majority of Latinx brown youth who already face the struggle against immigration policies that affect them and their families. Yet, many youth still continue to fight for a better tomorrow through their education. Many of those young people are also responsible for taking their siblings to school. Therefore, by requiring driver's licenses the district is not only stopping their students from attending school but many times their siblings as well. At Puente, we envision a world where all people have the right to a good quality of life and are treated with dignity. We also believe schools are a place of transformation, where we can begin to experience change. We are asking students to join us and asking the district to: - Parking should be open to all students that need it. - Stop requiring driver licenses from students to receive a parking permit. - Stop collecting information that can identify potential immigration status information. - End policing culture and practices that create obstacles for students to access their education.

    FIRST AND FOREMOST, La Resistencia demands the immediate release of Jose and everyone else detained. From the food, water, and air, the overall treatment of people detained in the NWDC is unacceptable and continues to violate human rights every day. SECOND, demand an end to the criminalization and deportation of Jose. Given the dangerous situation that continues to develop in El Salvador, Jose is unfortunately at high risk of being targeted based on his appearance. Deporting him would continue reinforcing a system of violence and oppression towards marginalized communities. Support Jose by signing the petition—together we will fight for everyone's release!

    Rudy currently has a lawyer who is fighting his deportation. He cannot be deported to El Salvador because “suspected gang members” with tattoos have been sent to jail and even tortured. Human rights watch expresses “In March 2022, the National Assembly declared a state of emergency and suspended basic rights in response to gang violence. Authorities committed widespread human rights violations, including mass arbitrary detention, enforced disappearances, ill-treatment in detention, and due process violations.” Because of Rudy’s past forced affiliation with gangs and the fact tattoos are considered as an indication of gang affiliation in El Salvador, deporting Rudy would be a death sentence. La Resistencia demands the release of Rudy and all those detained at the Northwest Detention Center. Rudy and everyone else detained are human beings who deserve to be respected and protected, and not be subjected to inhumane conditions inside the detention center. Rudy shouldn't continue to be criminalized for a crime he was coerced into due to the pervasive gang violence in El Salvador. Deporting him with the current system would be complicit in the ongoing systemic human rights abuses occurring in El Salvador. We should not permit Rudy to be deported by a system that marginalizes, strips people of their humanity, and labels them as criminals, he has a right to be free and be with his family. Please sign this petition to show your support for Rudy, and ask for him not to be deported and instead be released.
