CHICAGO, IL – On Thursday, August 20th, The Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100) Chicago Chapter in coordination with Black Lives Matter Chicago, We Charge Genocide, and Rekia Boyd’s family, will lead a public rally outside of Chicago Police Department (CPD) Headquarters to demand an end to police violence against all Black women and girls and to fire Detective Dante Servin; the CPD officer who was dismissed of all charges for murdering Rekia Boyd.

Black women and girls are victims of police violence, but their stories are less highlighted in comparison to Black men that have been victimized by police violence. BYP100 demands that justice is sought for all Black women and girls that are victims of physical, sexual, and structural violence by the police under their #SayHerName Campaign.  Over 8,000 people have supported BYP100’s demand to fire CPD Officer Dante Servin without pension. BYP100 will rally and address the police board directly to demand that Detective Servin is fired from CPD without pension for killing Rekia Boyd, an unarmed Black women.

Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100) is an activist member-based organization of Black 18-35 year olds, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people. We do this through building a network focused on transformative leadership development, direct action organizing, advocacy and education using a Black queer feminist lens. We are an organization affiliated with the Black Youth Project.
