ACLU Illinois has asked us to share this:

We are hoping to hear from people of color who have been impacted by CPD vehicle stops in the past, whether as a driver or a passenger. We’d like to hear from as many people as possible, whether they were let go, given a citation, or arrested during the vehicle stop. We are also very interested in hearing from people of color who are disabled.

They can send an email to ve**********@ac*****.org or reach out to Josh (847-767-3366) or Atticus (414-403-2538) directly to see if they would be willing to talk with us about their recent experience being stopped by CPD.
