Black and Pink: Chicago's Public Viewing of the Civil Commitment Archive Registration
In 2019, B&P Chi surveyed 200+ people who are civilly committed at Rushville Treatment and Detention Facility (one of Illinois' two civil commitment facilities). People inside Rushville were generous enough to share handwritten testimonials, diagnostic materials, and other resources that help us understand the cruelty of civil commitment in Illinois and beyond.
We would like to share these with the public so we can learn more about civil commitment through the experiences of people who are currently locked up in Illinois, and begin to brainstorm about how best to honor and share these individuals' experiences with interested community members.
You can use this form to register for the September 1st, 2020 public showing of the Civil Commitment Archive. This event will be hosted over Zoom, and we will use this form to send you the necessary details to access the Zoom event.
If you have any questions you were not able to communicate through this form, please feel free to contact us through our email address:

How did you hear about this event?
Is there anything you're specifically interested in learning about or hoping to get out of this event?
Do you have any access needs you would like to share with us prior to this event?
We will try our best to accommodate the needs of each attendee. Unfortunately, we are working with limited resources so we cannot guarantee our ability to accommodate all access needs. We apologize. We will contact you if we are not able to meet the needs you express here and try to work out a solution.
Would you consider making a donation to support our ongoing work?
We are fundraising to continue compensating incarcerated persons who participate in our survey and to sustain our work as we shift from researching civil commitment to directing our findings towards advocacy steps to abolish this inhumane practice. If you are open to donating, we are asking for a recommended donation of $10. You can do so at this link:
Thank you for considering!
