95 Million For? #NoCopAcademy Pop Up Exhibit & Teach-In

  • In These Times 2040 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

How would you spend $95 million dollars in your community? 

Last month, For the People Artist Collective asked Chicago artists to envision how they would spend $95 million dollars (the amount to be spent by Rahm on a new police & fire academy in West Garfield Park) in their own communities, and the responses were powerful and visionary! 

Please join us in viewing the posters that were submitted to our campaign, along with other works related to the campaign! We'll also be doing a quick, pop-up teach-in on the #NoCopAcademy campaign, full of updates and ways to plug in right now.
