Take action… because reporting police sexual misconduct shouldn’t land you in jail

The Chicago Taskforce on Violence Against Girls & Young Women is taking action to support Tiawanda Moore, a young woman here in Chicago who alleged that a police officer sexually harassed her, and then filmed the police at the station when she felt she was getting the runaround.  Ms. Moore has now been charged with eavesdropping on the police, and faces up to 15 years in jail.

Please take a moment to read & sign our petition on change.org – the petition includes info from the New York Times, which reported on the case back in January.  The Taskforce is collecting signatures and will be attending the trial, which has been rescheduled to May 3.
