After summer break, the Evanston City Council returns this evening with a full and important agenda, including a unanimous recommendation from Evanston's Equity and Empowerment Commission to support a local Reparations Policy #SolutionsOnly.
If you can attend tonight's meeting or speak in support at public comment--go!
Or you can send a note of support to Robin Rue Simmons 5th Ward Alderman at RSimmons@CityofEvanston.org.
If you're interested in working toward Reparations in Evanston, you can follow the work at the Facebook group Evanston Reparations/Solutions Only.
This is a groundbreaking moment and a really big deal.
