Join students, teachers, staff and allies for a summit on police free schools followed by a march to Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s house!

On August 26th the Board of Education will vote on whether to renew the $33M contract to keep Chicago Police in schools. We are demanding the Mayor tell her appointed Board of Education to vote NO to renew this contract and to reinvest those dollars into social workers, counselors and restorative justice alternatives!

Summit will kick off at 12pm with performances, speeches, and conversations with students and allies from across the city.

The March will step off at 1:30pm.

Masks are required (we will have masks for those who need them).

We will have a car caravan behind the march for those who don’t feel comfortable marching.

this event is being organized by the #CopsOutCPS Coalition
