Family calls for police reform at Homan Square protests


Public demonstration: A family affair

February 28, 2015

John Paul Gonzalez and his two children hit the streets of West Chicago Saturday afternoon to participate in public protests at the Homan Square warehouse complex, a so-called ‘black site’ facility where Chicago police secretly detained and interrogated thousands of people without providing access to attorneys, according to an investigation published April 16, 2016 by The Guardian US.

Gonzalez says the police reform demonstration presented him with an opportunity to teach his children about the issues at hand and show them the value of community organizing.
