EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES FOR PUBLIC SAFETY ORDINANCE NOW!
UPDATE: On July 21st, WE WON ECPS IN CITY COUNCIL!
The coalitions behind the Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC) and Grassroots Alliance for Police Accountability (GAPA) ordinances have united and created an ordinance to transform policing in Chicago. The two coalitions represent more than 100 organizations and tens of thousands of people. Hundreds of community members from neighborhoods across the city were directly involved in creating the ordinance that integrates the best thinking on police reform in Chicago and gives Chicago communities a powerful voice in determining what policing looks like. Aldermen who have led efforts for reform have been deeply involved, and the coalitions and aldermanic leaders are working to ensure that there is City Council support for the change Chicago needs.
EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES FOR PUBLIC SAFETY IS ENDORSED BY THE BROADEST COALITION OF COMMUNITY, FAITH, AND POLITICAL ORGANIZATIONS AS WELL AS LABOR UNIONS IN THE CITY OF CHICAGO, INCLUDING THESE CITY COUNCIL CAUCUSES:
HOW TO TAKE ACTION TO EMPOWER OUR COMMUNITIES:
Alderpeople need to hear from you! If you support the right to democratic oversight of the
Chicago Police, tell your alderperson to stand with the communities and ECPS!
