State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez Loses Re-Election After Tireless Campaigning from Chicago’s Black Youth

Chicago, IL — The following is a statement from Assata’s Daughters on their victory in #ByeAnita campaign:

“Chicago Black youth have kicked Anita Alvarez out of office. Just a month ago, Anita Alvarez was winning in the polls. Communities who refuse to be killed, jailed, and abused without any chance at justice refused to allow her to be re-elected as State’s Attorney.  

“We did this for Rekia… 

“We did this for Laquan… 

“We won’t stop until we’re free and Kim Foxx should know that as well.”
