On Nov. 22-24, a national human-rights organization is set to relaunch at a conference featuring Dr. Angela Davis.
The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression ( CAARPR ) has called together more than 120 organizations from across the country who will assemble at the Chicago Teachers Union Hall to re-found the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repressionoriginally formed in 1973 as part of the movement to free Davis and all political prisoners.
The national group is described as a "Black-led, left-led, intergenerational, national movement dedicated to fighting racism, police crimes and mass incarceration," according to a press release.
Davis will kick off the multi-day conference with a public Rally on Human Rights on Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. Frank Chapman, a former political prisoner and field organizer of CAARPR, is among the others slated to speak.
