Action Alert! Rally & March to Save Affordable Housing, Monday, July 15

Jul 10, 2024

We are facing a housing crisis! Sky-rocketing rents and the loss of more and more affordable units are forcing our neighbors out of the neighborhood or worse, into homelessness. 

Now two affordable buildings in Uptown, with over 200 units, are in jeopardy, unless the city and the state take action. Join us for a rally and march to show that Uptown supports affordable housing! We want to see a hundred people in the streets to show our people power!

Raise the Alarm to Save Affordable Housing!

  • Monday, July 15
  • Rally begins at 5:15pm outside the Leland Building, 4648 N Racine
  • We will then march through Uptown, approx. .8 mile, ending at San Miguel Apartments, 907 W Argyle.
  • Wear your orange ONE Northside t-shirt! We will also have them available at the action.
  • We will have rides available for those who can’t march. If you are able to drive, please reply to this email. 

Right now tenants from the Leland Building are facing uncertainty as the building is in foreclosure. The San Miguel Apartments similarly needs funding to remain affordable. Show up on Monday to show your support for these tenants in their fight to stay in their homes. 

Join us to build a diverse, united North Side of Chicago acting powerfully for our shared values of racial, social, and economic justice in communities where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
