Take Action with CPCA for a Just Police Union Contract

Join the Coalition for Police Contracts Accountability (CPCA) for a press conference and canvassing on the one-year anniversary of the expiration of the Fraternal Order of Police union contract. We will demand our aldermen and mayor change the current union contract to end CPD’s code of silence and allow for real accountability and transparency around police misconduct.
