27709348_944218802403466_6824576877614420795_oOn March 27, 2017 Wilmer Catalan-Ramirez was detained in a violent warrant-less 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, drinks, 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!

El 27 de marzo del 2017 Wilmer Catalan-Ramirez fue detenido en una redada violenta y sin orden de arresto que lo dejo con un brazo roto por los agentes de ICE. En el momento de su detencion, Wilmer se estaba recuperando de multiples heridas de bala que dejaron a mitad de su cuerpo paralizado. Desde este momento en adelante, Wilmer, su familia y comunidad han estado luchando por justice y su liberacion.

Despues de 10 meses de apoyo constante e incansable por parte de su pareja Celene, su familia, y la comunidad dentro y fuera del Centro de Detencion de McHenry, Wilmer por fin esta libre. Sin embargo, la lucha en contra de la base de datos de pandillas de Chicago que criminaliza a las comunidades Negras y Latinxs continua. Dadas sus heridas, Wilmer requiere cuidado medico extenso y probablemente una cirugia para su brazo. Les invitamos a que nos acompañen en una noche de comida, bebidas, musica, subastas/rifas, y comunidad mientras celebramos la liberacion de Wilmer y recaudamos fondos para su recuperacion.

Los boletos de adultos son $15 e incluyen un plato de comida. Boletos para niñxs son $5 (donacion sugerida) y se venderan en la entrada del evento. Por favor compartan con sus redes, incluimos en enlace de recaudacion de fondos por si no pueden asistir y quieren donar!
