Angela Y. Davis, Internationally Noted Human Rights Activist and Scholar will speak at our HISTORIC RALLY for refounding of the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression

Police crime survivors and the families of Chicago and national police torture victims, Dr. Angela Davis, Frank Chapman, Dr. Barbara Ransby, several alderpersons supporting CPAC, leaders of Chicago Teachers Union, and over 15 social movement activists will be speaking at our public rally, Friday-November 22, 2019 at 7 pm, CTU (Chicago Teachers Union) Hall. A special international video welcome is expected too.

With over 740 pre-registered attendees, Dr. Angela Davis will present a keynote that kicks-off this HISTORIC EVENT for our National re-founding conference (Saturday, Nov 23 and Sunday, Nov 24th). Davis will reflect on the refounding of the National Alliance, and why it is important to defend our democratic right to mass organize for human rights.

In early summer 2019, we initiated this call that has grown to include endorsements from 140 organizations and individuals from 99 cities/towns across 28 states (i.e., almost 60% of the states that comprise the United States of America). With the intensified FBI surveillance and targeting of Black activists; epidemic of police murder of Black and Brown people, the despicable and inhumane caging of immigrant families, their children as well as members of the LGBTQIA community; and violence against Black trans folks; responding to the need of these national events, the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (CAARPR) put together this call to further organize our efforts. CAARPR is a Black-led, 46-year-old intergenerational organization dedicated to fighting racism, stopping police crimes, and stopping mass incarceration. A recent “…study, conducted by researchers at Rutgers University-Newark and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, also found that black men are two-and-a-half times more likely to be killed by law enforcement over their lifetime than white men, and that African-American women, American Indian/Alaska native men and women, and Latino men also face higher odds of dying at police hands.” (
