In the Media
On December 19, wireless communications giants AT&T and T-Mobile agreed to drop their long-anticipated merger. Nearly 53,000 ColorofChange.org members signed a petition to the Federal Communications Commission in opposition to the merger when it was first announced in June. Earlier this year, nearly 40,000 members called on members of Congress to publicly rescind their support of the merger.
On November 16th, a Cook County judge vacated the convictions of a group of men, known as the Englewood 5, who were falsely arrested and harshly prosecuted for crimes they did not commit. This decision and the November 3rd exoneration of the Dixmoor 5 in a separate but similar case show that evidence, hope, and tireless legal and community advocacy can overcome long-standing injustices.
