Trump & Sessions Oppose Police Reform
Chicago has been working hard to reform its policing practices, working with the ACLU and the state of Illinois to increase police accountability and reduce violence and racial profiling. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have criticized the plan and say they will oppose its implementation. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson together said that Trump was “out of step with the people of Chicago and out of step with reality.” Apparently Trump and Sessions don’t like accountability for police any more than they like it for themselves.
1. Contact Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, decrying his interference with Chicago’s police reform.
2. Contact the White House and ask Trump to allow the City of Chicago to continue its efforts at police reform unimpeded.
3. Send a message of support to Rahm Emanuel.
