On Thursday April 9th, CR-CL will host a conversation with police accountability luminary G. Flint Taylor. Along with the People’s Law Office, Mr. Taylor has lad trailblazing investigations that have uncovered unprecedented and systematic injustices committed in and by the City of Chicago. Mr. Taylor’s efforts have led to the exoneration and compensation of men who were tortured into giving false confessions and to the exposure and cessation of Chicago’s “street files” program, which withheld Brady material wholesale.
Mr. Taylor will discuss historic police abuses and the present cultural moment while reflecting on a long and accomplished career. This event will take place from 12-1 pm in WCC 1023. Falafel, salad, and shawarma will be served.
Mr. Taylor will be available to meet with interested students from 1:30-2:30 in WCC 3016 to continue this discussion in a smaller setting over coffee and tea.
