Only we can stop CPD!

On July 21st, we won the Empowering Communities for Public Safety ordinance in City Council!

While we recognize this victory by the people for the people, we will continue to fight in laying the pathway for community control of the police in Chicago. Find out more about our next steps in the campaign by reading below.

Join the weekly ECPS Study zoom calls to learn more about ECPS and how to get plugged in to organizing to put it into effect! This study will be held each Saturday at 10am from September 4th through October 16th.

Since 1973, when it was born from the movement to free Angela Davis and all political prisoners, the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression has defended the rights of oppressed people in Illinois and around the world.


We defend the civil liberties of workers, activists, and prisoners. We struggle against white supremacy, the

prison-industrial complex, and state violence. We demand community control of the police and full representation for Black people and other poor and oppressed people at all levels of government.
