The Mayor’s Department of housing will soon be releasing a Request For Proposal (RFP) for vacant city land on 63rd St. in Woodlawn near the Obama Presidential Center.
Long-time working-class Black households can’t afford housing costs, which are rising especially in our gentrifying South Side neighborhoods.​
On Saturday, June 11, at 12 noon, South Shore community members and their allies will gather at 3325 W. Wrightwood Ave. near Mayor Lightfoot’s residence to demand a Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) that sets aside more land for affordable housing.
In South Shore, the Mayor is stalling and obstructing any effort to pass proactive policies to stop displacement. This rally will demand the Mayor take immediate action to deliver real equity around the Obama Center in the Woodlawn and South Shore neighborhoods.
If you plan to attend, please wear your CTU red, and let us know that you’ll be there by RSVPing below!
