“Here’s a quick shoutout from DFA about an important election in Chicago” -Admin Justin
“While the nation’s attention is on the presidential race, there’s a critical election coming up in less than a month in Chicago – on March 15 – and we cannot afford to lose.
You’ve probably seen the horrific videos of Chicago police officers shooting and killing innocent young black men, like Laquan McDonald. You may also know that it took years for those officers to be charged with a crime.
State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez and Mayor Rahm Emanuel did everything they could to stonewall the investigation and prevent justice from being delivered for the families of these victims.
Alvarez is up for re-election, and progressive hero Kim Foxx is fighting hard to defeat her and bring justice for all Chicago residents. We just learned that Alvarez’s wealthy allies in the political establishment are spending $300,000 in negative TV ads attacking Kim Foxx.
Now Kim Foxx is running for State’s Attorney in the March 15 election, and the establishment is panicking. They know she’ll fight for justice and police accountability.
The police killings of African Americans such as Laquan McDonald and Rekia Boyd aren’t isolated incidents; They are symptoms of a criminal justice system that needs top to bottom reform.
It’s time for new leadership in Chicago. As State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx will deliver the justice that families in all criminal cases deserve and need. Her definition of justice isn’t going to change depending on the identity of the suspect or the victim. And she won’t act only when there’s a video or the media pays attention.
The political establishment in Chicago spent years protecting violent cops. Now they’re spending big money on nasty attack ads against one of that city’s most important voices for justice. We have to fight back. Chip in $3 or more today to help Kim Foxx get her amazing new TV ad on the air.”
