Start your Shabbat at JRC! Our very own Rabbi Rossoff and Cantor Friedland lead a service filled with music, discussion and cameraderie.
This week, we're pleased to be joined by Craig Futterman, University of Chicago law professor and founder of the Civil Rights and Police Accountability Project (PAP). Since its beginning in 2001, the PAP (the first such program of its kind in the nation) has forced the opening of police misconduct records and won settlements for such wrongful police activity as kidnapping, planting evidence and filing false charges. Most recently, Futterman made national headlines by successfully suing for the release of the Laquan McDonald video, a revelation that has prompted a first-degree murder charge against Officer Jason Van Dyke.
