Subject: indefensible and repressive laws--help with a tiny step that can help get many people released?
The Chicago 400 are people who are on public conviction registries and homeless and therefore must register weekly at Chicago Police. (There are 400-500 people homeless in this situation, and 80% are Black men.)
The letter below articulates the alarming impact of registries and residency restrictions, especially on Black men in Chicago, and how under COVID, these policies especially endanger poor African-American communities. We presented this information earlier this year to legislators. We hope they will be ready to act now, as the situation is so dire.
Could any of your organizations help with the pressure by signing the letter?
This very minor change we request could truly help 1,000 get out of prison and another 300 people get housed (at no cost). The IDOC needs and wants to get people out. We just need more support to make it happen.
If national groups sign, it will also allow more local groups to do so. The laws are repressive and indefensible and we need more people to say so.
Thanks eternally to so many friends here for helping develop this work. All thoughts and ideas most welcome. The letter will be sent next week to coincide with a short radio story.
CHICAGO 400 / CHICAGO 400 ALLIANCE
Chicago 400 / Chicago 400 Alliance is a volunteer grassroots campaign working to roll back housing banishment and registry laws and call for police reforms. We are also focusing attention on the 1,400 people stuck inside prison past their release dates only because they have no housing—when they are released, they will be homeless too.
Chicago 400 are people who are on public conviction registries and homeless and therefore must register weekly at Chicago Police. The individuals and organizations working together to provide direct aid and policy support are the Chicago 400 Alliance.
Together we have a campaign—because we can’t let our elected officials just throw all these lives away.
Organizations are pitching in on a joint letter to describe the alarming impact of residency restrictions, disproportionately falling on Black men in Illinois. The two proposed reforms would help 1,000 people be released from IDOC in a short time and cut by hundreds the number of people who are literally homeless in Chicago. Letter here.
NOTE ABOUT THIS VERSION
We are still footnoting the data in this letter. We will send you the final along with any follow-up.
