Challenging E- Carceration Event Report Back
“I was assigned to be on the band for ninety days and it was worse than prison for me. It kind of made me feel like an animal.”
On July 17, a coalition of organizations, including Crossroads Fund grantees Circles & Ciphers, Organized Communities Against Deportations, Chicago Community Bond Fund, Moms United Against Violence and Incarceration, and Precious Blood Ministry Of Reconciliation, hosted “Challenging Electronic Monitoring in Cook County.”
This event was the Chicago launch of a national campaign focused on demystifying electronic monitoring and building a movement to slow the rise and, ultimately, end the use of this surveillance technology.
Crossroads Fund provided a grant to help make this event and campaign launch possible.
