*******For Immediate Release*******

Chicago, Illinois On 3-04-2015 at 9:30 a.m, A Press Conference will be held on the 2nd Floor at Chicago City Hall to discuss Homan Square and the ongoing Chicago Violence. Organizers and Leadership want to send the city a clear message and ask for accountability. The issue according to organizers is mostly centered around the recent Homan Square Facility inquiry followed by the growing sentiment around Greater Chicago that the most marginalized members of our communities are tired of schools being shuttered, clinics being closed, and police violence going unchecked.
 
The organizers will dispute-The Chicago Police Department released fact sheet from this past Sunday disputing claims they operate a secretive facility inside Homan Square on Chicago’s West Side where criminal suspects are denied basic rights.
