@ChiCopWatch | www.wechargegenocide.org
- At 6 PM, community members and allies gathered for a silent protest against police brutality -- lead by youth organizers -- outside the District 11 police station. Young people placed blue tape over their mouths to symbolize the 'blue wall of silence' around police violence.
- Families of those killed by Chicago Police, including the mother of Roshad McIntosh, attended the demonstration.
- Demonstrators entered the police station to give their list of demands to the commander.
- Earlier in the day, at Jane Adam's Hull House Museum, Page May presented We Charge Genocide: Police Violence Against Chicago's Youth of Color, which contains data and personal narratives collected by WGC at events, using their online submission form, the #ChiCopWatch hashtag, and publicly available data.
