On Friday, November 2, the union representing teachers and staff at four CICS campuses (ChicagoQuest, Northtown Academy, Ralph Ellison, Wrightwood) voted to authorize a strike. The authorization vote does not mean that a strike has started, or indicates when a strike might begin. It simply means that union members have voted to authorize the union to strike at some point in the future.

As we brace for what feels like a watershed moment in Chicago’s long history of police violence against young Black and Brown people, I’m thinking of our communities, our students, and our school staff and leaders. As you likely know, the verdict in the trial of Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke, who four years ago shot Laquan McDonald 16 times, is expected soon.
