Why Northwestern?
This is one of the ONLY hospitals in the entire region to offer liver transplants. Previous attempts to secure a meeting or deliver a letter to the hospital CEO have failed, with Northwestern Memorial Hospital threatening to call the police on the hunger strikers — who include critically ill patients and their loved ones, children and elderly family members. Almost all the participants are undocumented. The hunger strikers have been left no option but to intensify their protest, exposing themselves to great risk. Please join them in solidarity

What you can do
Join the hunger strikers Sunday at Northwestern Memorial between 3PM Sunday and Monday morning. Bring water, Gatorade or V8 juice, a tent or comfy sleeping mat to share. Bring sign-making supplies, a small banner etc. Share this announcement with your organization, neighbors, friends.
