On Friday June 18th, the Chicago City Council Public Safety Committee will make one of the most important decisions in its history!
The choice before the Committee is clear:
— Vote to support the decades-old demand for a democratic police accountability commission in Chicago
— Give in to the Mayor and continue the status quo, in which communities have no democratic power to determine what public safety looks like.
The Empowering Communities for Public Safety (ECPS) ordinance, will create an elected commission with power over Chicago Police Department policy and investigations of police misconduct.
