Join a Committee

Advocacy:

The advocacy committee takes action by advocating and organizing in support of movements, policies, and candidates for public office that are in line with ENR’s mission to end the systemic and institutional racism plaguing our city and establish a more just, accountable, and equitable Chicago.


Partnerships:

The Partnership Committee works to establish and maintain relationships with other Chicago based organizations advocating for civilian police oversight and working to dismantle the systemic racism that continues to oppress the BIPOC citizens of our city. We engage directly with partner organizations to identify opportunities and actions for ENR's support (e.g., petitions, fundraising, demonstrations, education, outreach). Since ENR's founding in the summer of 2020, our committee has connected with numerous organizations such as CAARPR, Black Abolitionist Network, the Chicago Torture Justice Center, and others. If you enjoy coordination, communication, and learning about different organizations throughout Chicago then this is the committee for you!

Membership:

The Membership Committee is focused on ensuring all members are supported in developing their role within the organization. We coordinate new member orientation and membership. We also help to ensure we are supporting members in building community and developing an anti-racist framework.

Art & Marketing:

The Art and Marketing committee takes action by creating all marketing and social media materials for ENR. Additionally A&M creates art pieces for protests and initiatives around the city. We frequently take on a leading role in organizing and executing protests. If you like marketing, event planning, and making art this is the committee for you!
