We Charge Genocide
We Charge Genocide is a grassroots, inter-generational effort to center the voices and experiences of the young people most targeted by police violence in Chicago. We Charge Genocide was started to offer a vehicle for needed organizing and social transformation. They are are not a 501c3 and do this work intentionally outside of the nonprofit industrial complex (which they believe sometimes silenced community advocates from being able to propose radical ideas and solutions). The name We Charge Genocide comes from a petition filed to the United Nations in 1951, which documented 153 racial killings and other human rights abuses mostly by the police. The group's focus is education and doumentation.
