Taking Back the Judiciary and Stopping Judge Coghlan
October 17, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Cook County judges have incredible power over criminal sentencing, housing cases, child custody disputes, and so much more. Yet despite rampant racism among the Cook County judiciary, in the past 40 years just *one* judge has lost a retention election. CDSA has recently endorsed the Coalition to Dump Matthew Coghlan, one of the county’s worst disparate sentencers and dirty cop protectors, who is up for a retention vote this year. This event will provide background information on the role of judges, judicial elections, and why Cook County voters need to #DumpCoghlan on November 6th.
