RSVP for this event
CRLN supports the goals of this march, yet we also understand the continuing need to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. Wear masks; distance yourself from others. If you do not attend the rally for health reasons, there are still ways you can support this campaign:
1) Read this article by University of Chicago Law Professor Craig Futterman about the history of police reform attempts in Chicago and why CPAC is necessary.
2) Check to see if your alderperson is on record to support CPAC, using this link. If they are, call and send an email to thank them. If they are not, call and send an email to ask them to publicly support the ordinance. The link above also has phone numbers and emails for alderpersons. If you don’t know who your alderperson is, it also will tell you how to find out.
3) Read about the campaign, using this link, to free incarcerated survivors of police torture. Sign a petition to Governor Pritzker to urge him to release all remaining torture victims from prison.
