WCRJ Digital Lobby Day
Time & Location
About the Event
Join the Workers Center for Racial Justice on January 6th for a Digital Lobby Day to advance our bill (HB 5830) to end systems of police impunity in Illinois.
In early January the Illinois legislature is expected to convene for the final days of the 101st general assembly session. During this time, the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus has committed to champion a sweeping racial justice policy agenda. Join WCRJ as we demand that the caucus include HB 5830 in their end-of-session legislative package.
Through our Digital Lobby Day, WCRJ will leverage our collective power to urge the Black Caucus to advance HB 5830, which would outlaw provisions in police union contracts that unjustly shield officers from accountability for brutality, abuse, and corruption. WCRJ will offer participants quick, easy, and meaningful opportunities to voice our demands for real police accountability through prewritten advocacy emails and social media content, as well as phone scripts to contact legislators.
Please register for the Digital Lobby Day below. On the day of action, we will send more information and instructions for our quick and accessible online actions.
