To: Chicago City Council
The Chicago Resolution Honoring India's Independence and Democracy
By signing I support a non-binding Chicago City Council Resolution celebrating India's 74th Independence Day and the values both India and the U.S. hold sacred: democracy, human rights, and secularism.
Given Chicago's values as a leading progressive, welcoming, and inclusive city, it is critical that Chicago join four other cities (Seattle, Washington; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Albany, New York; and St. Paul, Minnesota) which have already passed similar resolutions.
In signing, please indicate if you support as an individual or as an organization.
Why is this important?
During President Trump's visit to India in February 2020, mobs attacked minority neighborhoods leading to 46 deaths and displacing thousands. This tragedy along with discriminatory national legislation (including a religion-based system to grant citizenship) demonstrate that India's values of democracy, secularism, and human rights are under serious threat.
