Outraged that the CIty COUncil continues to play into Rahm's pocket, and 49 Alderman voted in November to support the $95 million dollar cop academy? Want to hold aldermen accountable, while organizing mass political education campaigns? Tired that even the most "progressive" candidates still ask for more policing and enforcement? Join us for a panel and workshop where organizers from the #ByeAnita campaign will share key strategies and lessons learned from their effort to oust State Attorney Anita Alvarez for her role in perpetuating anti-Black policies and expanding mass incarceration in Chicago. We'll have time to breakout and strategize next steps for organizing an effort in your ward for the upcoming 2019 Aldermanic races.
