The National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression was founded in 1973 in Chicago, Illinois to mount organized action against unjust treatment of individuals because of race or political beliefs. Its founding grew out of the struggle to free Angela Davis from a racist frame-up on murder charges surrounding the aborted attempt by Jonathan Jackson to free his brother, George Jackson and the Soledad Brothers in  1970. The National Alliance and its regional chapters continue to struggle for justice with a focus on the following goals: establish civilian control of police, free political prisoners and the innocent, stop all police torture of suspects, abolish the death penalty, defend the rights of labor, defend civil liberties, fight all kinds of bigotry, and more.
