Event description

Description

On March 27, 2017 Wilmer Catalan-Ramirez was detained in a violent warrantless raid that resulted in his arm being broken by ICE agents. At the time of the raid, Wilmer was recuperating from multiple gunshot wounds which rendered half of his body paralyzed. From this moment forward Wilmer, his family and community fought for justice and freedom for Wilmer.

After 10 months of unwavering and constant support from his partner Celene, his family, and the community inside and outside the McHenry Detention Center, Wilmer is finally free! However, our fight is not over as we continue to push for a dismantling of Chicago's gang database which unjustly targets and criminalizes Black and Brown communities. Due to his injuries, Wilmer continues to require extensive medical care and will likely need surgery for his arm. We invite you to join us for an evening of food, music, silent auctions/raffles, and comunidad as we celebrate Wilmer's release and raise funds for his healing.

Adult tickets are $15 and include a plate of food. Tickets for children $5 (suggested donation) will be sold at the door. Please share widely and invite your networks, below is the fundraiser link in case you aren't able to make it out!
