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.
