They raise rents, we raise hell! Join Lift the Ban Coalition and local organizations in Little Village for an action and march to demand that state lawmakers pass HB116 to #LiftTheBan on rent control now! Communities like La Villita know that rent control will combat the gentrification and displacement tearing at the fabric of our neighborhoods. Housing is a human right–and our elected officials must prioritize the struggling renters in their communities, not the greed of the corporate real estate lobby.

Meet at 1PM at Manuel Perez Jr Plaza at 4345 W 26th St. For more information contact info@ltbcoalition.org.

¡Levantan rentas, levantamos el infierno! Unirse a Lift the Ban Coalition y organizaciones locales en Little Village para una acción y marcha para exigir que los legisladores estatales pasen HB116 a #LiftTheBan en el control de alquiler ahora! Comunidades como la Villita saben que el control de alquileres combatirá la gentrificación y el desplazamiento nuestros barrios. La vivienda es un derecho humano, y nuestros funcionarios electos deben priorizar a los inquilinos en dificultades en sus comunidades, no la codicia del lobby desarrollador corporativo.

Reúnase a la 1PM en Manuel Perez Jr Plaza al 4345 W 26th St. Para más información contactar con info@ltbcoalition.org.

This month marks one year since the COVID-19 virus began taking the lives of people incarcerated in Cook County Jail. Join us on the one year anniversary of Nickolas Lee’s passing to lift up the memories of the lives lost to the virus inside CCJ and to continue to fight for everyone who remains incarcerated there.

The pandemic magnified the harm CCJ has been causing our communities for decades. On this anniversary we are issuing a call to decarcerate Cook County Jail, invest in our communities and for Sheriff Tom Dart to step down.

This action will include a rally and march outside Division 5 (27th & California) and a car caravan. If you would like to participate in the car caravan register here to receive information on when and where to gather: https://forms.gle/AntdRBEPjhvZ9v646

As we remember lives lost to Covid 19, it’s important we gather as safely as possible. We will be outside and all attendees are asked to practice social distancing and wear masks.

Rally to Demand Democracy: Fighting for the Freedom to Vote

April 8, 2021 - 5:30 PM

Federal Plaza, 219 S. Dearborn, Chicago, IL

Supporting Organizations: Indivisible Chicago & Alianza Americas

After four years of resisting, it’s our time to demand that Congress takes bold action to solve the climate crisis, address racial and economic injustice, invest in our communities, and ensure permanent protections for immigrants – among others. But it all starts with our demand for democracy and the fight for the freedom to vote. The House of Representatives has passed the For the People Act, the largest and boldest Democracy bill in modern day history. If this bill passes the Senate, it will bring about sweeping democracy reform in our nation, including protecting and expanding voting rights, ending partisan gerrymandering, and curbing big money in politics. And its passage will end the racially based attack against voting rights in states across the country.

Join Indivisible Chicago as we gather in Federal Plaza to Demand Democracy. This event will be outdoors at Federal Plaza. For all of our safety and the safety of our communities, masks must be worn and we ask everyone to maintain social distancing.

Speakers include:
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, Illinois 9th District

Jay Young, Executive Director Common Cause Illinois

Kina Collins, Gun Violence Prevention Advocate and former candidate for the Illinois 7th

Jason Rieger, Executive Director Indivisible Chicago Alliance

Immigration Rights activist [details to come]

Migrant children are still being detained in Chicago instead of being liberated into the care of their loved ones. The child detention business is once again booming. Biden, unlike Trump, is no longer focused on summarily deporting migrant children — but this does not mean the children are able to reunite with loved ones. Instead, they are taken to detention facilities officially called “shelters”, where their cases drag on for months while their families are investigated. Join us for a solidarity demo to show some love to the detained children and call for an end to all prisons — even the so-called “nice” ones!

The fight for a community-driven police accountability system has been going on for years in Chicago, and it’s reached a historic moment in the Empowering Communities for Public Safety (ECPS) ordinance. The coalitions behind the CPAC and GAPA ordinances have come together to put forward ECPS, which will create the strongest police accountability model in the country, and a pathway towards community control of the police. We demand that City Council vote on and pass this ordinance at their next meeting on April 21st!

Join us at the Thompson Center during the City Council meeting to hear from members of both coalitions on what this ordinance and this moment means for them, for the countless Chicagoans affected by daily acts of police terror, and for the survivors of CPD’s violence. While we’re out there, we’ll be making some noise, to ensure the City Council hears how much support there is for this ordinance.

Bring noise-makers, instruments, pots and pans to bang together. Make sure your car horn is working. Our communities will be heard! It’s time for Lori Liefoot to step aside, and let the people decide!
