Release of Chicago Women Take Action (CWTA) Policy Recommendations for Gun Violence Prevention and Police Accountability
Monday, June 12, 2017
Chicago Temple, 77 W. Washington Blvd.
CWTA Gun Violence Prevention and Police Accountability Committee
CWTA (chicagowomentakeaction.com) is an ad hoc group of women activists representing a variety of organizations who are united in the commitment to achieve women’s leadership and economic and social equity. Among other issues, we work to secure the health and well being of women, their families, and communities.
CWTA will be joined by several other Chicago organizations currently working on similar issues.
Current gun violence in Chicago is unacceptable, and recommendations for helping to prevent it are immensely important. Police accountability is one factor that can transform the relationship between the community and the Chicago Police Department to work cooperatively on this issue.
