IVI-IPO examined divided votes from May 2015-December 2018, selecting ordinances which revealed aldermanic attitudes toward social, racial, and economic justice, government accountability and transparency, and fiscal responsibility. We also included one unanimous vote, the Red Line TIF, because it represents the very worst aspects of the TIF program in Chicago.

What We Believe
The Coalition of African American Leaders believes that it is important to examine the critical issues confronting the African American community where injustice, inequality and the absence of access and opportunity continue to prevail, thereby negatively impacting us as a people. COAL is an assemblage that advocates and organizes for appropriate and responsible public policy change, system behavior change and equality of opportunity. We aim to achieve for all of our people the fullness of the life experience without any form of racism or exclusion as a deterrent. We believe we must prepare ourselves for the opportunity of this full participation, thereby achieving the necessary education and training to participate.
