Join us on August 8th at 11AM to demand Lane Tech’s LSC vote to remove SROs from Lane Tech’s campus!

After public pressure from over 1,600 students, alumni, parents, and teachers demanded that Lane Tech’s LSC vote to remove SROs from the school, the LSC set the date to officially consider the decision on August 10th at 6:30PM.

With the recent violent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery at the hands of the police, unprecedented peaceful uprisings of millions of people have spurred across the United States in response.

This uprising has moved from justified outrage and anger, to organized and concerted demands. These demands include the demolition of statues of slave owners, and genocidal historical figures, but most principally, the defunding of local police departments, and the severing of contracts between public schools and police departments and the removal of police officers from those schools.

Following the lead of other CPS school communities like Northside College Prep, Clemente, and Benito Juarez Community Academy, we have to organize and demand that Lane Tech’s LSC vote to remove SROs.

Can’t attend, but you’re a part of the Lane Tech Community? If you are a Lane student, alumni, parent, faculty or staff member, email LaneTechSRO@gmail.com the contents of this link:
