Chicago Torture Justice Memorials (CTJM)
Chicago Torture Justice Memorials (CTJM) aims to honor and to seek justice for the survivors of Chicago police torture, their family members, and the Black communities affected by the torture. CTJM is a cultural collective founded in 2011 that has fused art, activism, and radical popular education with a tenacious commitment to antiracist politics. CTJM spearheaded a grassroots campaign that led to unprecedented reparations legislation passed unanimously by the Chicago City Council in May 2015. Today, our mission is to fulfill the final piece of the reparations legislation: a permanent public memorial for the Jon Burge torture survivors. Honoring the police torture survivors and their resilience, Chicago’s memorial will show the nation and the world how public art can bear witness to the ugly truth of our past and how people can come together collectively to seek positive change and repair systematic harm.
