Last month, we opened our Police Issues Action Center in Rosemont, Illinois to take our Restore Respect for Police campaign to the streets. We are pleased to announce a successful voter activation campaign as a result in recent elections on April 6ht. The efforts paid off where nearly 70% of residents voted “no” on a referendum to defund the Oak Park police department.
Executive Direct, Simon Lewis, talks about the dangers of these suburbs falling into Chicago’s big city trap. The city of Oak Park set the example for other communities in their recent elections and it’s not too late for others to reject the new progressive anti-police sentiments and stand up and support their law enforcement.
