On Wednesday afternoon, Alderman Carlos Rosa (35th) and David Moore (17th) motioned for a defer and publish on the allocation of funds for the proposed cop academy, successfully postponing the vote until this Friday! Maldonado (26th) also asked that he be recorded as a No vote before it was deferred and published. This is a MAJOR win because we now have 3 aldermen on the side of the people, all thanks to the persistent and brilliant leadership of young Black organizers of Assata’s Daughters and with the support and effort of over 70 organizations in Chicago. Rahm thought the cop academy would be a “quick done deal” but now he has to deal with us.
Flood City Hall this Friday at 1pm with us and fill the chambers to see how the rest of our “elected” representatives show up for young Black futures. No Cop Academy, $95 mill for community!
