If you live in Chicago, please get in touch with your alderperson and ask them to support ECPS — Empowering Communities for Public Safety. Yes, that means “defund the police” and reallocate money to more effective resources in the community, and create democratic police accountability. Follow the Chicago Alliance @caarprnow, and get more info at bit.ly/SupportECPS.
