Pilsen Alliance & Illinois Humanities bring people together despite challenges

November 20, 2017

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

Pilsen Alliance does not promote or condone racial hatred or more division in the community, in our almost 20 years of existence we have never organized any actions against any local business, and we invite EVERYONE to this important dialogue about creating truly inclusive, affordable and equitable spaces. It is our responsibility to be part of the change we would like to see in our community, so we invite you to be part of this productive conversation among residents and business owners. Ten thousand residents displaced, five thousand of them evicted in the last decade, local businesses closing due to high rents; these are some of the challenges ahead, but in unity and solidarity we can again show our strength and resilience as a community. 

Let’s have an honest and respecful discussion about solutions to these issues in our community facilitated by Illinois Humanities.
