After hurricane María devastated Puerto Rico the neglect of the US and Puerto Rico’s governments has left the Island in a dire state, with a confirmed death toll of over 2,965 people on top of a $73 billion debt. The Fiscal Control Board and the government have been playing with the livelihood of the most vulnerable Puerto Ricans by closing schools and basic services. This is outrageous. From Puerto Rico to New York, Boston, Phoenix, Orlando and Chicago, people are standing up for the dignity of Puerto Ricans.
Join us for this national day of action on the anniversary of the hurricane to demonstrate our indignation on the Federal Plaza on 230 S. Dearborn St. on September 20th at 5:00 PM. We will rally and march to call out these abuses and say #DecolonizePR, #YoNoComoAusteridad, #ConstruyamosOtraVida, #LaQuieroPublica, #SeAcabaronLasPromesas

A 24-year-old transgender woman was found dead August 30, 2018, in an alleyway on Chicago’s South Side. The victim, who has now been identified as Dejanay Stanton was a Black trans woman.
Stanton marks the 17th trans person murdered in the United States this year so far—a majority of whom have been Black. The ongoing violence that Trans individuals experience on a daily basis needs to be properly addressed by the community!! In a span of 10 days 3 Trans women have been killed — how can we work as a community to put an end to the violence?
Join us Friday September 21, 2018 on Wabash and Wacker near the Trump Towers at 6pm as we host a rally to commemorate the loss of our Trans siblings. Afterwards we will be marching to the Daily Plaza to host a candlelight vigil.
