Public Safety & Criminal Justice
Chicago is in the midst of a dual crisis of gun violence and police legitimacy. In 2016, after a decade of progress reducing gun violence, the city experienced a dramatic rise in shootings and homicides. While these rates have declined in the years since, Chicago’s level of gun violence remains unacceptable.
Our vision is a city where everyone – residents and police – is safe and justice is exercised consistently across all communities.
Specifically, we facilitate reforms to ensure:
Violent crime reduction;
Fair application of justice; and
Restored trust in law enforcement.
