Chicago reopening: Parks west of Lake Shore Drive, libraries back open Monday June 8, 2020

“Parks that are reopening include Grant Park, Lincoln Park, Burnham Park, Harold Washington Park, Jackson Park, the Jackson Park Golf Course and the Diversey Driving Range.”

While ANY AND ALL BEACHES REMAIN CLOSED FROM NORTH TO SOUTH, parks north or south of Lake Shore Drive that do not have a beach are OPEN (i.e. Steelworkers and Berger Park).
Also, on the south, the GREEN SPACE at RAINBOW and CALUMET PARKS are OPEN, even though the beaches there are closed!
The 606 remains closed.
The talks are on-going as to exactly how and when to reopen the Lakefront Trail, but we’re told it’s coming soon.
If you would like to see the full list of closed parks, beaches and public areas CLICK HERE to read the Mayor’s order and see “Attachment B” on the last page.
We hope that access to these parks will allow Chicagoans a chance to stay safe and space out more while getting the physical and mental benefits of visiting the parks and being with nature.
In solidarity,
Juanita Irizarry

What You Missed In June…Previous Activities, Events, Services, & Workshop of this Month:

South Shore:

CALLING ALL SOUTH SHORE BUSINESS OWNERS AND VOLUNTEERS***
South Shore Community Clean-Up

When: Monday, June 1, 2020

Time: 8:00am – 1:00pm

Location: 1750 E. 71st Street. Chicago (Meet in the parking lot)

As our nation continues to grapple with the tragic killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and tensions continue to rise throughout many communities, we have seen a segment of protesters vandalize neighborhoods across our city. South Shore has unfortunately fallen victim to this vandalism. It is imperative that we do not lose sight of the systemic and structural changes that George Floyd’s killing and so many others have perpetuated, but equally as important, it is imperative that we do not decimate our own communities in the process.

Join the South Shore Chamber of Commerce and Neighborhood Network Alliance tomorrow morning for a South Shore Community Clean-Up. Let’s help to restore and heal our community. Come out and join us.

We will be practicing social distancing guidelines as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

For more information call 773.609.3007

South Shore Works-We need a group of Volunteers in the AM to help clean up and refocus this on the demand for justice.

South Chicago Community Clean-Up

  Hosted by Southeast Youth Alliance

In solidarity with the movements for black lives that are rising up against white supremacy and police brutality we are holding a community clean up on Commercial Ave. on Monday, June 1st to remember George Floyd and many others. We know that emotions are running high and people have different opinions about the “correct” way to protest. We are not here to admonish the rage being felt by traumatized community members but to build community through a clean-up along Commercial Ave.

If you’re interested in seeing how you can help in the Southeast Side community please join our zoom call at 9 am to assess the situation, come together with resources, and see if we’re allowed to begin cleaning*
If we’re given the greenlight we will begin cleaning at 11:00 am
Location: TBD
Wait for our Greenlight or join in on our zoom call.

We are demanding immediate justice for George Floyd and all those murdered by the police and racist vigilantes. All four officers who killed George Floyd must be arrested and charged with 1st degree murder.
We are demanding community control of the police – the people of Chicago need #CPACNow so we can decide who polices our communities and how they are policed. It’s important now more than ever in light of the rampant police brutality at protests in Chicago and across the country. Read more about CPAC here: https://www.caarpr.org/stop-police-crimes
We are demanding the immediate release or pardon of all those incarcerated in prisons, jails, and detention centers. All those arrested for protesting must be released without charges. Gerald Reed and all survivors of police torture and the wrongfully convicted must be freed.

Government vs. Private Decisionmaking [Webinar] Hosted by The Federalist Society
How should societies respond to pandemic crises, and to what extent has the American response tracked ideal models? To what extent should public and private actors take responsibility and coordinate with each other? What considerations should govern the allocation of public/private decision making in confronting COVID-19? What are the risks and benefits of decisions being made by the government (at all of the different levels of government), businesses, and individuals? What, in the response thus far, has worked and what hasn’t? Do government decisions about what to close down and when to reopen create serious crony capitalism and public choice problems, or in such an emergency will politicians rise above those temptations? What, if anything, does COVID-19 tell us about Medicare for All?

Music has the power to build community, inspire, and heal our spirits.
During quarantine, our friends at Chicago Unite at Night started a powerful movement when they launched nightly sing-alongs and light shows to uplift our essential workers.
They stepped up to shine a light for racial justice.

We ask all of Chicagoland to join us on June 12 starting at 9pm as we unite to honor our city’s graduates with a sing-along and light show to uplift our youth and celebrate their accomplishments.

Chicago’s virtual graduation for high school seniors will be June 14: Here’s what to expect

Oprah Winfrey will be the commencement speaker for a special online event to celebrate the city’s graduating high school seniors.

Chicago’s virtual graduation to send off the city’s high school seniors amid the coronavirus pandemic will be held Sunday, June 14 at 1 p.m., with Oprah Winfrey set to make the commencement address.

“Graduation 2020: For Chicago. By Chicago,” an effort between the city and hedge fund business Citadel, will be hosted by Mayor Lori Lightfoot with Chicago native and “Hamilton” star Miguel Cervantes as the ceremony’s emcee. It will stream live on the city’s website and various social media channels in addition to television coverage from networks including ABC7 and Univision.

“While Chicago’s 2020 graduating class cannot walk across their school’s stage to get their diplomas, we are asking them to don their caps and gowns on June 14 as the entire city celebrates this unforgettable milestone together,” the mayor said in a statement.

Chicago students have been remote learning since officials closed the schools in March to limit spread of the coronavirus. Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced in mid-April that they would not reopen for the remainder of the school year. Not long afterwards, Lightfoot danced her way onto TikTok to announce that Oprah would be the commencement speaker for an online ceremony to replace the area’s canceled graduation events.

As the importance of Black lives reemerges to the public conscious after the death of George Floyd, we’re reminded of an important truth: you can’t discuss environmental justice without talking about racial justice.
Police brutality displays the patterns of structural violence that the United States operates under. This structural violence devalues Black lives and is the same systemic oppression that causes our climate crisis.
Join us this Thursday at 5pm CST as I facilitate conversation around how we can approach a just recovery from COVID by centering how racial justice and enviornmental justice are intertwined.
I’ll be joined by Illinois State Representative Marcus Evans and Vote Solar’s Midwest Director John Delurey to discuss the importance of prioritizing the benefits of solar for communities of color in our push for renewable energy.
At the Faith in Place Action Fund, we stand in solidarity with the fight for Black lives and continue to host conversations and initiatives based in racial justice. In order to create an equitable world, there must be justice for Black lives. https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0pdumtrT0jHdzr98c2gK9A3UngFzota1p9?emci=f88d8393-10af-ea11-9b05-00155d039e74&emdi=953b7a9a-18b0-ea11-9b05-00155d039e74&ceid=822553

Hosted by Mariano’s 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM 7522 S Greenwood Ave, Chicago, IL 60619-2615, United States Mariano’s and Kroger Health will provide free, drive-through COVID-19 testing in Chicago at New Life Covenant Church Southeast, Tuesday June 16th thru Friday June 19th from 9am-2pm! Community members can register at: http://krogerhealth.com/covidtesting. Eligibility will be established by a virtual screening tool based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines along with recommendations from state and local government. Those eligible can select an appointment time in their area. Then, registrants will receive an email confirmation with pre-appointment paperwork. Each patient should have a photo ID at the testing site and should leave car windows rolled up until a Mariano’s pharmacy associate approaches the car and advises the patient when to roll down the window. The drive-through testing location has a self-administered nasal swab that must be ordered and observed by a provider. Kroger determined this testing methodology is beneficial as it increases the number of tests that can be provided while conserving available personal protective equipment. Mariano’s pharmacists expect to test as many as 130 people per day. Results are expected within approximately 72 hours.

Info Shared by Danielle Richards:



After the past 3 months–it’s very clear we are in a new era. COVID-19 losses, stay at home orders, confronting racism head on, are just some of the things that have turned our lives upside down.
The current generation is facing something that we’ve all had to face in prior generations, only this time with tenacity and fearlessness. Their determination is saying to all of us that they choose to be the ones to complete what’s been incomplete.
I have lived my life in revolution–tied to generations of revolution. I watched my parents and great-grandparents, how they saw the world and what they were trying to do. After the civil rights era, it took decades for most of us to realize we’d been had and took. We had many of the same demands 40, 50, and 60 yrs ago.
As I watched the raspberries blossom this Spring, the Earth gifted me with a beautiful proverb: There must be flowers before there is fruit.
It is very clear, over and over again, we were unable to create the outcomes that we were striving to achieve because we didn’t have skill sets. When we as a community lack basic skills; how to build, how to grow our own food, this makes us vulnerable. We need a new kind of leadership to assist communities in being resilient: those who speak through their actions.
Blossoms don’t necessarily mean fruit, but must come before the fruit. Everything has to line up, for pollination to give way to fruit.
To support fertility in this transition time, we at Black Oaks Center are launching two new initiatives: CommUnity Leaders Circle and CommUnity Learning Days.
CommUnity Leaders Circle
This circle is for everyone who is dedicated to sustainable communities, rooted in the values of self-determination, dignity and connectedness. Keep an eye out for an email in the next week, with details and how to join.
CommUnity Learning Days
We are at the brink of something new! It will take new skills, determination and perseverance to make our visions manifest.
CommUnity Learning Days at the off grid eco campus will allow participants a chance to get away from urban stress and stains, be close to the Earth and have a chance to clear your head.

Fair Tax Leadership Training
Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon and Whole Foods, just took away the $2 per hour wage increase he gave Whole Foods workers at the start of the pandemic. He is also on track to become the world’s first trillionaire. That’s not right!
The COVID-19 pandemic has been great for Jeff Bezos, but deadly for the rest of us. And it’s been most deadly for Black people, other people of color, and workers on the front lines.
I’m ANGRY that Jeff Bezos could do right by his workers, but chooses to hoard his wealth. After all, he wouldn’t be rich without the tens of thousands of people working for him who struggle to pay rent, afford childcare, and get healthcare on low wages.
If this makes you angry too, please help us pass the Fair Tax in Illinois on Election. The Fair Tax will require wealthy people to pay their fair share so we can fund the things we need. It is also necessary step to generating money to spend on racial equity. And we know that state budget cuts disproportionately harm Black communities and other marginalized groups of people.
Get started by participating in our Fair Tax Leadership Training:
Fair Tax Leadership Training
10 AM to 2 PM
Two Saturdays: June 20 and June 27
RSVP TO GET THE ZOOM LINK
The Fair Tax will make wealthy people in Illinois pay their fair share, so that our state can eventually have more money for childcare for low-wage workers, schools, anti-violence programs, and lots of other things. In the short-term, it will help prevent some of the most devastating cuts the state might have to make to balance our budget.
Please spread the word on Facebook too!
Our Leadership Training will explain how the Fair Tax works, ask you to reflect on what’s at stake for YOU, help you to have effective conversations with your neighbors about voting YES for the Fair Tax on Election Day, and teach you to use texting and phone banking software to reach them.
In solidarity,
Kristi Sanford, The People’s Lobby
P.S. The staggering wealth inequality that happens when wealthy people and corporations don’t pay their fair share is not race or gender neutral! Black and brown communities always get the shaft when we don’t equitably fund education, health care, social services and public jobs. Women do $1.5 trillion in unpaid caregiving work every year in America. Passing the Fair Tax is a necessary step to ensure Illinois has money for the things we need. RSVP for the Fair Tax Leadership Training today! https://actionnetwork.org/events/part-1-fair-tax-leadership-academy?link_id=1&can_id=84b5f01c611d7eab8f78c9d0213a8141&source=email-are-you-angry-about-the-inequalities-deepened-by-covid-19&email_referrer=email_828257&email_subject=are-you-angry-about-the-inequalities-deepened-by-covid-19

Join us for Part II of this innovative, virtual penmanship and music meditation jam led by Arts + Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture Artist-in-Residence, Ben Lamar Gay. Ben will explore sound through penmanship and experiment with how a line can be manipulated to document the past, present, and future. Ben will also be joined by special guest artist, musician, actor and puppeteer Sam Lewis. We will listen, improvise, and attempt to remember the dance of the hand and the pen. Participants will be able to follow along at home and can share their work online with the hashtag, #writeon
About Ben
Ben LaMar Gay (he/him) is a composer/cornetist who moves components of sound, color, and space through folkloric filters to produce brilliant electro‐acoustic collages. The unification of various styles is always in service of the narrative and never solely a display of technique. The Chicago native’s true technique is giving life to an idea while exploring and expanding on the term “Americana”. His musical influences derive from his collection of experiences in all of the Americas and the gathered data channeled by technology and its amplifying accessibility. The fact that the world is closer via technology and that everyone has access to the possibility of exploring different ideas, makes his avant-garde version of “Americana” very global. Embracing international vision while remaining true to his roots, Gay’s creative output aligns with the honest notion that he only knows how to be a man from the South Side of Chicago. Active in the vibrant experimental music scene of Chicago, including a three‐year residency in Brazil, allows him to collaborate with some influential figures in the world of music. The list includes George Lewis, Itibere Zwarg, Black Monks, Nicole Mitchell, Jeff Parker, Mike Reed, Joshua Abrams, Celso Fonseca, Tomeka Reid, Bixiga 70 and the Association of the Advancement of Creative Musicians, to name a few.
