STRATEGIES

 
Praying Together

POWERFUL PRAYER - DEPENDENCE

We believe that change comes through the power of prayer

OUR DEMANDS

Community Police Reform

We demand reforms to our current police systems to provide proper representation of the local communities they serve. 

Shut Down the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Facility

We demand the immediate closing of the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Facility. As the largest juvenile jail in the world, it promotes the mass incarceration of black male youth at unprecedented rates.

Decolonization of Local Church

We advocate for the empowerment of the local church to create a culture and identity against religious institutional racism, discrimination and oppression. 

Community Health Reform

Activating the faith community and neighborhood organizers to collaborate in fighting against systematic health disparities that plague local urban contexts.
