We understand the matter is complex, that collaborations among government bodies are challenging. But we strongly urge the key players to make the final pact that will launch an initiative truly worthy of Oak Park’s history of social innovation.
We believe this is an investment that will pay off in academic achievement through grade and high school, will improve the behavior of kids and lessen negative encounters with police, will strengthen families in our village.
We have faith in the leadership of the Collaboration and in the vision they have articulated. Now is the time to invest in that vision.
