Eight hundred delegates to the newly re-founded National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression chose veteran organizer Frank Chapman as their executive director, last month. “This was a powerful conference, indicative of the fact that there’s a powerful movement building up in our country for community control of police,” said Chapman, who helped keep the Chicago chapter of the Alliance going after the national organization was disbanded in Nineties. Chapman calls the new Alliance “a fighting united front, because 99.9 percent of the people who were in that room are activists. They’re not just ready to fight – they are fighting.”
