The gruesome shooting of Laquan McDonald by Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke brought national attention to the long dysfunctional relationship between the Chicago Police Department and the city’s African-American communities. Jamie Kalven and his colleagues at the Invisible Institute have worked to increase CPD accountability and transparency, from suing for the public disclosure of police misconduct reports to helping South Side teens document their interactions with police. Kalven will be in conversation with former prosecutor and current Chicago Police Board president Lori Lightfoot.
