A Washington D.C. based attorney, C. Boyden Gray, has written a letter to Mayor Stephe H. Hagerty and members of City Council, stating in part, “I write on behalf of the Project on Fair Representation, a not-for-profit legal defense foundation that believes racial and ethnic classifications are unconstitutional, unfair, and harmful. The purpose of this letter is to warn the City of Evanston that its new reparations proposal is unconstitutional—specifically, that the evidence for its proposed racially discriminatory reparations program is seriously insufficient to state a compelling interest, and that its proposal is not narrowly tailored to achieve its stated interests.” For the full letter, click here.
