Want to know why so many Chicagoans are calling for police reform or abolition? Come to SURJ's first "A World Without Police" workshop: "A History of Policing in Chicago, from 1850 to the 2017." We'll explain the racist origins of policing in the United States, study how, decade after decade, the police have systemically targeted black and brown Chicagoans, learn about failed attempts to reform the CPD , and explore how black and brown Chicagoans have led efforts to hold Chicago police accountable for their unconstitutional and violent actions. Led by activists and historians, the workshop will take us to the present moment, addressing ongoing CPD and ICE cooperation, as well as plans for the new police academy.
