February 6, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join us for a discussion on Chicago’s new District Councils that are coming soon to each of our city’s 22 police districts.

On Election Day on February 28th, voters across the city will elect three District Council members in their police districts. Learn about what this new position is all about!

The event will feature a presentation and panel discussion with organizers who have been leading the work to bring civilian oversight to the Chicago Police Department and create a Chicago where all of us are safe.

Panelists include Jackie Baldwin, Director of Antiracism & Equity, Jewish Council on Urban Affairs; Max Bever, Director of Public information, Chicago Board of Election Commissioners; Reverend Damon Smith, Deputy Director, District Councils, CCPSA; and Jane Ramsey, President, Just Ventures, LLC
