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.

Last summers destruction of the Casa Aztlán’s historic murals and the influx of gentrifying businesses and aggressive, rapid displacement by developers have forced us to continue defend working class hoods across the city from this violence.

La destruccion de los murales historicos de Casa Aztlan, el aumento agresivo en negecios gentrificadoras , y el aumento de desplazamiento por inversionistas nos obliga a continuar a defender los vecindarios de gente trabajadorx en todo Chicago de este violencia.

Stand in SOLIDARITY with displaced people around the world!

¡Camina en SOLIDARIDAD con los desplazados del mundo!
