Description

Page May, organizer with We Charge Genocide, presents a "shadow report" that has been submitted to the UN Committee Against Torture in Geneva. We Charge Genocide is a "grassroots, inter-generational, volunteer effort to center the voices and experiences of the young people most targeted by police and most impacted by police violence in Chicago." According to WGC, the name of the organization "comes from a petition submitted by the Civil Rights Congress to the United Nations in 1951, which documented 153 racial killings and other human rights abuses, mostly by the police." It builds off the tradition and legacy of the Civil Rights Congress' effort by working to document how police continue to afflict communities of color today.
