Thursday, August 16 - Demand CPD Reform / SaveSCOTUS - Day of Action

Actions You Can Take Today


Action 1: DEADLINE TOMORROW - Demand Reform in the Chicago Police Department

The Illinois Attorney General and the City of Chicago recently unveiled a draft agreement to guide reform of the Chicago Police Department. The plan, a “consent decree” to be submitted to a federal court for final approval, aims to address problems detailed in a scathing report from the U.S. Department of Justice last year.

The ACLU, alongside its clients and community partners, recently released a response on how to improve the draft plan: A Commitment to Real Reform.

The Illinois Attorney General is accepting public comments, but the time is short. The period for comments closes on this Friday, August 17.

Send a message to the attorney general today to ensure these important improvements are included in the final version of the consent decree.
