Resist War! This is part of a national call to action.

The Trump regime is bombing Syria. We must not fall for the lies and propaganda. Trump’s war is not about democracy or humanitarian intervention. Trump’s war is about U.S. superiority and domination. Just like the rest of his agenda, his attack on Syria is about white supremacy and increasing the profits of the billionaires.

For 16 years the U.S. has destroyed the Middle East, leading to the greatest refugee crisis in history and the rise of ISIS. More bombs is not the answer. Trump bombing Syria is a great danger to the people of the world. We must come together and resist!

People United Against Opression, a Pakastani-American social justice organization is partnering with ANSWER Chicago for this important action. If your org wants to partner with us message us or call us at 7738853991.

Still Fighting for the Dream

Supporting Organizations: Resist Trump Tuesdays Chicago, Fight For 15 Chicago

Nearly 50 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated while standing with striking sanitation workers in Memphis – fighting just like we are today for The Dream of fair pay and racial justice.

On April 4, we’ll be carrying on that dream with protests across the nation, including Memphis – because economic and racial justice are two sides of the same coin. You can’t have one without the other.#ResistTrumpTuesdays Chicago is partnering with Black Lives Matter Chicago and the Fight for 15 to organize the Chicago action.

As Dr. King said, “white supremacy and corporate greed have always been linked in America,” and right now Republican leaders across the country are pushing radical laws to crack down on protest movements. They’re working to block cities from raising wages. They’re trying to tear up the Voting Rights Act and keep us from the polls while they demonize and deport our neighbors.

Now more than ever, we have to band together as a movement for fair pay, as a movement for black lives, as a movement for immigrant rights, and as a movement — above all — for justice.

When corporate-backed politicians move to break unions and refuse to bargain with workers.

When families struggle to pay bills and more than half of black and Latino workers make less than $15 an hour.

When a fast-food worker works all day long to feed his daughter and still can’t make ends meet.

We must stand together. Commit now to join us on April 4.

Planned Parenthood Pink Out

This is a national event – there are no Chicago rallies/marches scheduled. However, there are ways to support this action regardless of location:

Top 5 Ways to #PinkOut

Pink Out Day is time for reproductive rights supporters to show their defiance against the relentless attacks on Planned Parenthood. It’s a day to show anti-women’s health politicians that we will fight like hell to protect our 2.5 million patients a year and the 1 in 5 women that will go to Planned Parenthood in her life.

It’s a day for people to unite and say: We resist. We are strong. And we’re not backing down — not today, not ever.

Additionally, for those out in Downer’s Grove, a group is planning on being present outside the local clinic.

Washington DC is repealing the Affordable Care Act and dismantling Medicaid, Governor Rauner clings to irresponsible and harmful policies without a state budget, along with many additional issues impacting people with disabilities across Chicago, Illinois, the Midwest Region of the United States and the entirety of the United States, are just some of the reasons why we must gather together in force to resist the civil rights-stripping governments we face in every corner of our country, local, state and federal.

Speakers featured at the Rally will represent as many of the different cross-sections of our community, including Black, Latino and Latina, immigrants, queer siblings, women and individuals with varying types of disabilities. Worker rights, Black Lives, Trans Lives, Deaf Lives; they and all of us are at risk.

Together, we can demonstrate our Power in Community, Power in Identity, Power in Choice and Power in Our Very Lives.

Please reach out to us if you’re interested in speaking or know someone who would be a great speaker. Also reach out if you require an accommodation.

ASL and Spanish interpreters will be available.

We are receiving word that the Paul Ryan Fundraiser at the Chicago Club has been cancelled for now. Nonetheless, yesterday over 1,000 people came out to the streets of Chicago to defend healthcare, and to resist the new attacks being initiated by the disastarous healthcare bill. It was an excellent beginning, but we want to keep up the pressure and stay in the streets.

So tonight, instead of the Chicago Club, please join us at Trump Tower at 4PM to continue standing against the Trump regime, and to stand up for healthcare as a human right that should not be subject to the whims of a right-wing congress!

Tell Gov. Rauner: Do Your Job!

Stop Holding Illinois Hostage—Pass A Fair Budget Now!
Don’t Dictate, Negotiate a Fair Contract with State Workers!

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is hosting a “Governor’s Dinner” to raise money for himself and other Republican politicians—charging $40,000 for a “Gold Level” private reception.

We won’t be buying any tickets, but we’ll be there—to tell Governor Rauner to “DO YOUR JOB, negotiate with state workers and sign a budget now!”

Join Illinois Working Together, the Chicago Federation of Labor, AFSCME Council 31, SEIU Illinois, the Illinois Federation of Teachers, Citizen Action/Illinois and more.

For two years, Rauner has failed to propose a balanced budget and refused to work with legislators on a compromise. From students to seniors, he’s holding hostage the people of Illinois.

Meanwhile, Rauner has failed to settle contracts with five unions that represent the overwhelming majority of women and people of color in state government. For the past year he’s refused to negotiate at all with AFSCME, the largest union of public service workers in state government, instead pushing to impose his harsh terms!
