Community Forum on the University of Chicago Police Department and its Relationship with the Community

On Wednesday, October 29, at 7:00pm, the Invisible Institute will host a public forum on
the relationship of the University of Chicago Police Department to the communities it
serves. Public safety is a concern to all. The Kenwood, Hyde Park, and Woodlawn
neighborhoods have the benefit of being policed by the UCPD as well as the Chicago
Police Department. As is the case of the CPD, community members have a range of
concerns about UCPD policies, transparency, and accountability. The forum, which will
be moderated by journalist Jamie Kalven, is an occasion to voice your concerns and to
hear those of your neighbors. All are welcome.

The forum will be held at the Experimental Station at the SW corner of Blackstone
Avenue and 61st Street. There is ample street parking. Please enter at the Blackstone
Avenue door.
