All over the country, police agencies and local governments have been caught using secrecy to hide video evidence of crimes that officers commit. Independent journalists and local news organizations have been key in uncovering this evidence and holding the police accountable—including in the latest shocking case in Chicago.

This crowd-funding effort will help the journalists who forced the release of the Laquan McDonald video, and then fund similar lawsuits by local journalists to bring transparency to our nation's police and city halls through Freedom of Information Act lawsuits.
