Anjanette Young Agrees to a Sit-Down With Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Anjanette Young, the woman who was handcuffed naked while her home was being wrongfully raided by Chicago police, has agreed to a meeting with Mayor Lori Lightfoot and a handful of Chicago aldermen.

According to Chicago’s CBS 2 station, Young’s lawyer Keenan Saulter wrote in a letter on Saturday that Lightfoot sent an email requesting to meet with Young just before her scheduled press conference on Dec. 17. And while both Saulter and Young felt the timing could have been better, Young is willing to meet with the mayor—but under certain guidelines. One of those guidelines is to meet at Young’s church instead of Chicago police headquarters or City Hall. The other request is that the conversation be held with Young, her lawyer, Aldermen Pat Dowell, Sophia King, Raymond Lopez, Stephanie Coleman, Jeanette Taylor, Jason Ervin, Rossana.
