Join Chicago residents from across the city as we unite against the taking of homes and resources, whitewashing of culture and the corporatization of black and brown communities.

Únese con residentes de Chicago de todos vecindarios en contra de la pérdida de casas y recursos sociales, el emblanquecimiento de la cultura y la privatización de las comunidades de color.

Pilsen, Uptown, Humboldt Park, Wicker Park, Little Village, Albany Park and Hyde Park and all other hoods threatened by the wave of gentrification.

The recent destruction of Casa Aztlán’s historic murals were a call to action!

¡La destrucción reciente de los murales históricos de Casa Aztlán fue una llamada al accion!
