The Community Renewal Society Palm Sunday Takeover action is an initiative by people of faith to follow their Biblical tradition and act for justice on Palm Sunday by calling for action in Chicago to address police brutality. On Palm Sunday, churches all over the city will “occupy” their local police stations to call for passage of the FAIR COPS Ordinance and witness to the need to recognize that Black Lives Matter and call for an end to police brutality.
