Community Forum on Police Reform and Police Accountability

  • First Unitarian Church 5650 South Woodlawn Avenue Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

Our Advocacy Director Aneel Chablani will join the ACLU's Kathy Muse for Indivisible Chicago's community forum on police reform and police accountability in Chicago at Hull Chapel at the Unitarian Church, 5650 S. Woodlawn.

The forum will focus on the consent decree being negotiated by the Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan, community organizations, and the City of Chicago. The negotiation is based on an investigation of the Chicago Police Department (CPD) conducted by the United States Department of Justice Civil Rights Division and the United States Attorney’s Office Northern District of Illinois.

The investigation, released Jan. 13, 2017, found that “The CPD engages in a pattern or practice of unconstitutional use of force,” and “this pattern is largely attributable to systematic deficiencies within CPD and the City.”
