Fed Up Fest - Chicago

  • Co-Prosperity Sphere

Ya'll better be PUMPED for Alice Bag at Fed Up Fest in just three weeks! She'll be reading from her new book Pipe Bomb for the Soul and performing some sick tunes.

If you haven't noticed already, Fed Up Fest officially has venues confirmed for all three days!!!! Friday and Saturday will both be at Co-Prosperity Sphere again, located at 3219-21 S. Morgan St. in the Bridgeport neighborhood. Sunday will be just a few blocks down at Benton House, located at 3052 S. Gratten Ave. While Friday and Saturday are absolutely wheelchair accessible, we regret that Sunday's space is not. We appreciate Benton House for letting us use their space when we were left with very little to no options that were both affordable and responsible, and we are incredibly sorry for the non-accessibility of the Sunday space. Both venues will have gender-neutral bathrooms and support liasons present. Please email us at chicagoqueercore@gmail.com if we can answer any further questions and concerns about the spaces for this weekend. Thank you for the continued support!!

Farce of July - Chuco's Justice Center

  • Chuco's Justice Center

Chuco’s Justice Center serves as a youth and community space, resource center and gathering place for organizers, artists, educators and organizations building a social justice movement in Los Angeles.  The CJC works to challenge the criminalization and mass incarceration of youth and communities; police unaccountability and state violence (ie: police brutality, ICE raids, gang injunctions); or the creation and/or expansion of the prison industrial complex.  The CJC is a collective space where the membership and organizations involved work together to provide shared leadership that is most beneficial to the community and larger justice movement.

When the YJC first started, we struggled to find free or low-cost space.  We lived out of our cars and Kinko’s for two years.  When we got our space, we made a commitment to provide low/no-cost space to grassroots organizing groups working to challenge the mass incarceration of communities of color, and/or addressing community and/or police violence.
