Actions You Can Take Today


Action 1: TONIGHT - CBA Rally to Stop Displacement

A CBA Housing Ordinance was introduced in City Council in July. The Mayor promised she would pass it. Let’s keep up the pressure and make sure we get this done.

The Obama Center is expecting to break ground in the coming months, and the real estate speculators have not stopped. Let's make sure we put in place protections to stop displacement before it's too late.

When: TONIGHT - September 5 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Where: Hyde Park Academy (6220 S Stony Island Ave)
RSVP and share on Facebook

Action via CBA for the Obama Center


Action 2: Film Screening -- Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook on 9/9

Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, Rigged chronicles how our right to vote is being undercut by a decade of dirty tricks--including the partisan use of gerrymandering and voter purges, and the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court. The film captures real-time voter purges in North Carolina and voter intimidation in Texas. Watch the trailer here.

Indivisible’s Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth and Maggie O'Keefe will speak prior to the film from 6-6:30 p.m. and the film will begin at 6:30. Running time is around 1h19m.

When: Monday, September 9 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: Sulzer Regional Library (4455 North Lincoln Avenue)
