Public Forum: Torture’s Impact on Families and Communities
Professor Adam Green, from the University of Chicago and author of Selling the Race: Culture and Community in Black Chicago, will provide an overview of the history of police torture in Chicago, followed by a panel discussion with mothers of torture survivors on the impact that torture has had on their families and their communities. A question and answer session will follow their presentations.
The Illinois Coalition Against Torture (ICAT) is an association of individuals and community-based organizations whose goal is to end U.S. torture by state actors at all levels of government at home and abroad. We want to eliminate the culture of impunity regarding torture through influencing public opinion and advocating for political change.
