Justice 4 Miracle, Police Brutality Victim Relief

Miracle Boyd, a rising young activist of GoodKids MadCity was brutally assaulted by a Chicago police department officer, an attack that was captured on video.  

Miracle, who is 18 years old, had just spoken to a crowd protesting at the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park, as she continues to collaborate & mobilize around an end to systemic police violence & lack of neighborhood investment. 

The video shows Miracle speaking with officers, while backing away from an increasingly agitated police force. In the process of Miracle attempting to deescalate, video captures an as of now unidentified officer knock Miracle's phone away & throw a left punch that struck Miracle in her face. Miracle clearly injured & stunned, then runs away from this officer & his fellow officers that failed to stop this attack & hold this officer accountable. 

Black & Brown youth continue to experience severe emotional & physical distress from encounters with police. 

Miracle is going to require medical support in her journey to repair the physical & emotional damage done by this violent encounter. 

All funds raised will go directly to supporting Miracle in receiving the medical, dental, & mental health support she requires as she continues on this journey of healing. 

We also call for Chicago's Mayor, Lori Lightfoot & the Chicago Police Department to identify the officer that assaulted Miracle & bring him to accountability. 

Community members continue to mobilize & call for change in our communities, yet the powers that be continue to place more value on racist relics than human lives. 

The Chicago Police Department is not keeping Chicago residents safe. Instead, CPD continues to add to the violence. 

Please support Miracle if you can. Anything helps. 

My name is Anthony Clark & I am a high school teacher & director of local nonprofit Suburban Unity Alliance. All funds raised will go directly to supporting Miracle's journey & any additional funds raised will be donated to the continued fight to improve our communities & end police sanctioned violence.
