Police Accountability

CU leaders led efforts along with other community organizations across the city representing individuals with disabilities, and filed a lawsuit against the City of Chicago to ensure the needs and demands of people with disabilities were included in the City’s negotiations on a consent decree with the Illinois Attorney General. Community leaders who had been directly impacted by police abuse spent more than a year and half negotiating and testifying on the need to reform the police department. Today, the consent decree has gone into effect, and community leaders are closely monitoring its implementation.
