Redistricting Hearing Schedule. You must click on the date to see if it’s a virtual or in-person meeting date.
I tried to get a little more information on how this affects us. I
think redistricting affect how many State Representative we have per district depending on Census. What Is the Job of a State Representative: Duties

State representatives introduce and vote on bills that represent the interests of their constituents (people who live in their voting district). They create new laws, modify or update old laws and serve on research committees within the legislative branch. These representatives uphold the state’s Constitution and vote on changes to the Constitution when amendments are needed. They may address issues such as education, transportation, commerce, state taxes, and any other items that are a concern to local residents. Representatives may also assist constituents with personal legal issues such as immigration or justice problems.https://work.chron.com/job-state-rep-7593.html

What do humans and monarch butterflies have in common?
The Guardians takes us through a journey of an indigenous community in México. In this documentary, the people of Donaciano Ojeda in Michoacán, México confront internal divisions and illegal loggers in order to recover the forest in their ancestral lands that have been nearly destroyed. Like the millions of monarchs that also call this forest home, their survival depends on it.
Join us as we highlight the need for monarch habitat conservation and our collective responsibility to carve out a sustainable future for monarchs and migrants.

SkyART

3026 East 91st Street

Chicago, IL 60617

Also volunteers will be provided gloves, bags and gardening necessities. Social distancing and the mask mandate will be adhered to. Forecast is 59 degrees and sunshine!

About: SkyART provides a broad range of free visual art programming to young people through our Studio, School, and Community Programs. Our defining innovative approach, the SkyWAY, is a shift in perspective that blurs the lines of formal art education and centers on art-making as an inherently educational experience. Through the lens of art, SkyART focuses on creative youth development, constantly striving to make programs more relevant and more dynamic. You will not find its studio walls filled with identically constructed projects; you’ll find vibrant collaborative canvases, 12 feet wide, and full of color. You will not see “art students” following the directions of an “art teacher”; you’ll find an animated community of makers, working together to identify relevant pathways for each participant to follow, refining the group’s trajectory as they go to include all individual contributions to a shared collective vision

As a complement to the SkyART Studio Programs, the Family Table program reflects one of SkyART’s core values, Totality, a commitment we made to nourish the whole child. This Program includes providing our participants with home-cooked meals, teaching them how to make nutritious snacks in our Kitchen Studio, and showing them how to sow seeds and harvest organic food from our four-city lots Artist’s Garden.

Learn more about SkyART at www.skyart.org

Info Shared by South Shore Chamber Inc: The Paycheck Protection Program has been extended through May 31, 2021
President Joe Biden has signed the PPP Extension Act of 2021 into law, extending the Paycheck Protection Program an additional two months to May 31, 2021, and then providing an additional 30-day period for the SBA to process applications that are still pending. Read more here.
About the Paycheck Protection Program
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a loan designed to provide direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on payroll. Additionally, borrowers may be eligible for PPP loan forgiveness.
Find a PPP lender
Applicants must apply to a participating PPP lender to be considered for the Paycheck Protection Program. Find a lender through Lender Match or by searching for lenders near you here.
First Draw and Second Draw PPP loans
If you have not received a PPP loan before, you can apply for a First Draw PPP loan through a participating PPP lender. If you have received a PPP loan and meet further eligibility requirements, you can apply for a Second Draw PPP loan.
