About two issues we deeply care about: removing the carve outs in the Welcoming City Ordinance (which allow City officials to cooperate with ICE when it comes to criminalized members of our community) and policing of our communities. We asked Mayoral candidates for their thoughts on these two issues and received their telling responses.
Note: Mayoral Candidates Bill Daley, Bob Fioretti, John Kozlar, Garry McCarthy and Willie Wilson did not respond to the candidate questionnaire on these two important issues.
We also made this graphic (en español) for you to use when deciding who to support as the next Mayor. OCAD also made sure to bring these issues up at the Mayoral forum we co-hosted on January 16th as part of the ReImagine Chicago campaign spearheaded by Grassroots collaborative. There’s a write up of the event by the Chicago Tribune here.
