Before COVID, before George Floyd, and well after: Mayor Lori Lightfoot has encouraged and engendered violence against Black, Latinx, immigrant neighborhoods.

The Chicago Police have beat us and harassed us in our own neighborhoods before our protests and now are using our demonstrations to use military violence against us. NO MORE!

– Defund and demilitarize the police
– CPD and National Guard stand down IMMEDIATELY
– End the Curfew
– Release all protesters
– Redirect CPD funds to schools, PPE equipment, COVID testing, and rent relief
– Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC) now
