DETAILS: How to Get Involved in the Stop Police Crimes Community Outreach..
Neighborhood Tabling and Organizing
We currently have a presence in a limited number of neighborhoods based around information tables where we engage community members and collect signatures in support of CPAC. We also publicize upcoming events like the recent August 29th demonstration and distribute First Defense Legal Aid information (http://www.first-defense.org) as well details of our police crime survivor support group that meets every 2nd & 4th Tuesday @ 6pm at 1325 S Wabash, Suite #105.
From these tables we have been enlisting community members to carry literature and petitions back through the neighborhood. We need you to help staff these tables. Our work model so far has been to have new volunteers get used to corner work by starting at established locations with Alliance organizers. Once you are comfortable with the work, you could oversee that table or move on to establish a new location. The eventual goal is to have people from the community take over the tabling. We will expand to more communities as fast as our manpower allows. Here are the locations we work at so far:
53rd & Harper
63rd & King Dr.,
63rd & Cottage Grove,
69th & the Dan Ryan
112th & Michigan
Madison & Pulaski
Tabling is every Saturday from Noon until 3PM. These locations need more staffing so if you have a couple of hours free each week join us!. We need to spread the campaign to even more communities. Call us now at 312.939-2750 or email: [email protected] to let us know which table location you can assist with.
If you are a member or representative of an organization such as a union local, church, political, or affinity group you can mobilize your organization to work on the campaign for CPAC including tabling and outreach. Use the manpower and resources of your organization to spread the campaign. Distribute CPAC literature to the membership or contacts of your organization. Use your networks for phone banking. Don’t hesitate to come up with your own ideas to promote CPAC as an organization. If you would like us to come to your group or organization to present more info about CPAC, call us at 312.939-2750 or email: [email protected]
