It’s official! Please welcome our new District Council Members!
Yesterday, the city marked the historic occasion of swearing in sixty-six new elected officials. After seven years of organizing for more civilian-led police accountability, today we officially have District Council Members in office!
As with any elected official, ONE Northside is dedicated to building strong co-governing relationships with the members of the 17th, 19th, 20th and 24th District Councils. All of them have committed to transparency and restorative justice as they take office. We are excited to work with them to implement these practices and to use their new elected offices to win real, concrete reforms in how the police operate in our communities. We will support them (and hold them accountable) throughout their four-year terms.
Congratulations to all the new District Council Members, and to every volunteer, leader, and organizer who made this historic day possible!
We also want to give a special shoutout to Darrell Dacres, ONE Northside’s very own Program Manager for our CP4P Violence Prevention Program, who was sworn in as a District Council Member for the 20th District!
