Implicit Bias Training Needed For Evanston Police Officers

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

The message I am trying to spread with this petition is that all Evanston police officers should be required to go through with implicit bias training. This training would hopefully educate officers on subconscious stereotypes and biases that cause minorities to be targeted by the police. In March, the Chicago Tribune reported that "black residents in Evanston are subjected to more stop-and-frisk encounters than any other group". In order to combat the racial profiling evident in our city, we must encourage our officers to address the problem from the inside. If you want to see a change in the way officers interact with minorities in our communities, sign this petition and spread the word. Every signature helps!
