CPD conducts approximately 1,500 raids of family homes every year. Nearly all of them have targeted Black and Brown families, and nearly half fail to yield a single arrest.
 
Join me for a virtual town hall on Tuesday, May 4th from 6-7pm as we hear from Chicagoans who have been harmed by these wrong raids and people like me who are supporting the Anjanette Young ordinance. This ordinance implements a series of common-sense changes that will have the immediate effect of preventing harm to Chicago families and police officers alike. Again, this meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m. The link to register for the town hall event is below.

Do you want Illinois to be a leader in clean energy? Are you concerned about the safety of our drinking water? Do you want to stop environmental racism and ensure that ALL communities have access to good jobs and clean air and water?
Join the NRDC Illinois organizing team to talk about some major environmental justice bills making their way through Springfield during the 2021 legislative session. We only have four short weeks before this year’s session ends on May 31! That means we need to move fast to ensure our state legislators do what’s right for the environment and bring these bills forward for a vote before it’s too late.
We’ll be discussing:
– Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA)
– Lead Service Line Replacement Act
– The “environmental justice bill” HB 3090
Our organizers will cover what’s in each of these three bills that are making their way through the legislature, why it’s critical that we pass them during the 2021 legislative session, and how you can take a few simple actions during the month of May to help ensure their passage.

— A mass vaccination site will open in Hammond, IN to help vaccinate Hispanic Hoosiers:

Where: Wolf Lake Pavilion (2324 Calumet Ave, Hammond, IN)

Sign-up: Ourshot.in.gov

No medical insurance or ID required, at no cost
State Representative Mike Andrade (D-Munster), the only current fully Hispanic state legislator, partnered with Lindsay Weaver, Chief Medical Officer at Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), to aid vaccination efforts toward the Latino community.
“This vaccine site will be for Hispanic Hoosiers at the heart of our community,” Andrade said. “I understand why somebody may be hesitant — I grew up with some family members who did not have medical insurance — but this shot is free, and no insurance or ID is required. There is no better way to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo weekend than to get your COVID shot.
“This vaccine will protect you and your loved ones. Come to the site and get vaccinated.”
To overcome any language barrier, there will be Spanish-speaking volunteers at every step in the vaccination process. The site will have the Moderna vaccine. The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana will also be providing boxes of groceries at the site for families in need.

Derek Chauvin trial enters the fourth day after jurors were shown a video of George Floyd’s cries of ‘I can’t breathe’

Jurors will enter day four in the trial of police officer Derek Chauvin having been shown video of George Floyd pleading nearly 30 times that he could not breathe and calling for his mother in the minutes before his death.

Mr Chauvin is charged with two counts of murder and one count of manslaughter over the death of Mr Floyd, the unarmed black man whose killing triggered a wave of racial equality protests around the world.

Police video played in court on day three of the trial on Wednesday revealed that after the ambulance took Mr Floyd away, the Minneapolis officer who had pinned his knee to the victim’s neck defended himself to a bystander by saying the 46-year-old was “a sizable guy” and “probably on something”.

The day ended with the jury watching videos of Floyd’s arrest and death repeatedly for more than an hour, each captured from a slightly different angle by the body-cameras worn by the responding officers.

Footage and witness testimony showed how Mr Floyd’s alleged attempt to pass a fake $20 note at a shop last May escalated to the point that the officer knelt on his neck for 9 minutes, 29 seconds, as he lay face-down in handcuffs. by Yahoo News

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.

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

Illinois legislators are getting back to work so it’s time for Illinoisans to make their voices heard. This year we’ll be lobbying not only for the Clean Energy Jobs Act– which would be the nation’s most progressive energy policy– but for Lead Service Line Replacement and Environmental Justice in Permitting as well.

Register today to join hundreds of environmentalists for Environmental Justice Lobby Day on Monday, April 26. Illinoisans from across the state will be appealing to Governor Pritzker and members of the General Assembly to act now to pass climate and environmental justice legislation. It will take all of our voices joining together in support of CEJA to make sure Springfield hears us.
Stay tuned for upcoming teach-ins on the environmental justice bills we’ll be supporting throughout the week, actions you can take to support these important bills and opportunities to connect with other Lobby Day participants! https://ilenviro.org/lobby-day/?fbclid=IwAR07qgWfMWHxik-i_COG2x1NMz5DcB7TU_mxMEQTxkZWiYUGttSfNwN-eHU

Older Black/African-Americans are about twice as likely as whites to have Alzheimer’s or other dementia. Hispanics/Latinos are about one and one-half times more likely to have Alzheimer’s or other dementia. Although social determinants of health can lead to differences, achieving health equity is important because everyone deserves access to early and accurate diagnosis, the best available treatments and the most beneficial caregiver support available.

Please join us for live screening and conversation with members of Grace House and Beyondmedia Education, moderated by Professor Sally Nuamah from the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern on March 3. In addition to the live event, two supplemental films from the Beyondmedia Education collection will be available to watch on the Block’s Vimeo from March 3 through March 7.

ABOUT THE EVENT:
“Voices Across Time: Sharing Women’s Experiences of Re-entry” brings together organizers from Beyondmedia with current and former members of Grace House, a residential program for women exiting the Illinois prison system. This screening and discussion center women’s experiences of re-entry, exploring the possibilities of art and storytelling in reclaiming citizenship.
In the early 2000s, activist media organizations Beyondmedia Education and Visible Voices offered critical, collaborative media-making workshops to formerly incarcerated women at Grace House as part of the re-entry process. These pedagogical encounters, spearheaded by artist Salome Chasnoff and activist Joanne Archibald, created space for women to challenge mainstream media’s representations while learning to use the tools of video production. In videos like “What We Leave Behind” (2001, 21 min), the women of Grace House told their own stories on both sides of the camera; this screening and conversation asks what these initiatives mean today.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
GRACE HOUSE
Since its opening in 1994, the Grace House residential program has provided interim housing, emotional and spiritual support, and professional counseling to women who are exiting the Illinois prison system. Services are provided in a warm setting located on the Near West Side of Chicago. Residents are encouraged to set goals for the future and are taught how to make informed choices that will empower them to lead lives with dignity in their communities and their families. Program participants come to Grace House voluntarily, seeking to take steps that will lead them to a new beginning.
The Grace House program works: in Illinois, 35% of women released from prison recidivate (return) to prison within three years. For women completing the Grace House program, only 5% return to prison.
BEYONDMEDIA EDUCATION
Beyondmedia Education’s mission is to collaborate with under-served and under-represented women, youth and communities to tell their stories, connect their stories to the world around us, and organize for social justice through the creation and distribution of media arts.
SALLY NUAMAH
Sally A. Nuamah is an assistant professor of Urban Politics in Human Development, Social Policy and Political Science (by courtesy) at Northwestern University. Professor Nuamah’s research sits at the intersections of race, gender, education policy, and political behavior. In addition to her work as a scholar, Professor Nuamah works as a workshop mentor at the Grace House for incarcerated women and girls in the United States.
Co-presented by the Block Museum of Art with The Graduate School, Graduate Women Across Northwestern (GWAN), Women Initiating New Directions (WIND), and Gender & Sexuality Studies.

The book, and accompanying film, provide insight into Baldwin’s relationships with three famous, assassinated friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dear Friends of the Calumet Region,
We hope you can join us for a virtual open house this Monday, March 8, 4:00-5:00 pm, to review the Management Plan for the Calumet Heritage Area (CHA). The Plan is linked here, along with a form to record your feedback if you would like to do so in advance of the open house. Please RSVP here to attend the open house, and you’ll receive a Zoom link on Monday.
If you are not able to attend Monday’s open house, we hope you will share your comments by filling out the feedback form by March 22. Thank you to those who attended the previous open house, and please forward this note along to others who might be interested in reviewing the Plan.
About the Calumet Heritage Area Management Plan:
This Plan signals that the Calumet Heritage Area (CHA) is taking the steps to organize and carry out a range of activities. Many people across the region have participated in the development of the Heritage Area over the years. We trust that the Plan is a faithful reflection of this regional dialogue as the CHA becomes fully operational.
The CHA has the potential to become the go-to regional organizer of efforts to link natural and cultural stewardship across state and local boundaries; support specific heritage initiatives; and elevate the visibility of the region for its natural, industrial, and urban significance. As a supporter of a vibrant and renewed region, we hope you will take the time to give us your response to the draft plan.
The Plan creates operational guidance for the organizations and networks participating in the effort. In this respect, it differs from the Calumet National Heritage Area Feasibility Study that was approved by National Park Service Staff in 2018. At present, the Heritage Area is not yet a National Heritage Area — that requires Congressional designation. While looking toward that possible future which would enhance the capacity of the Heritage Area to have impact, this Plan provides the guidance to begin the work now.
Feel free to reach out to me, Mark Bouman mbouman@fieldmuseum.org with any questions or concerns.
To learn more about the CHA and National Heritage Areas, see the Feasibility Study on the CHP website.
Best,
Mark Bouman

On March 8th, the trial of Derek Chauvin, one of the four killer cops being tried in the murder of George Floyd, is set to begin. The whole world witnessed the brutality that stole George Floyd’s life. People took to the streets in Chicago this Summer, as they did in cities and towns in every state in this country, to demand justice for him and all those murdered by police. We are taking the streets again for a rally, march, and car caravan in solidarity with Minnesota organizers, whose state has never seen a white police officer prosecuted for murdering a Black person. We are demanding justice for George Floyd and all those murdered by police, that Derek Chauvin and all four officers involved in George Floyd’s murder be convicted and taken off the streets, CPAC Now for community control of police, and Free Them All!

Join us for screenings and discussions of two inspiring films featuring strong female leaders doing their part to make this a healthier world for all.
MAXIMA
Filmmaker: Claudia Sparrow / 2019 / 53 min
Topics: People & Cultures, Social Justice, Historical Perspectives, Water
FILM DESCRIPTION: “Maxima” follows Peruvian indigenous farmer Máxima Acuña in her fight to protect her land as she stands up to the largest gold producer in the world: US-based Newmont Mining Corporation. Throughout Máxima’s fight for justice, the film provides an illustrative case study in the tactics used by transnational corporations to commit human rights violations and environmental crimes, the role played by non-profits and The World Bank, and, ultimately, the resilience of one woman who refuses to back down.
BECOMING RUBY
Filmmaker: Dave Mayers / 2020 / 18 min
Topics: Health, People & Cultures, Social Justice
FILM DESCRIPTION: Not seeing herself reflected in the community she loves, mountain biker, skier and artist Brooklyn Bell created her own role model: a hand-drawn hero called Ruby J. With Ruby J as a guide, Brooklyn spent the next few years trying to “live like her, breathe like her, be unapologetically black like her,” and in the process shaped her own identity, one that intertwines her love for dirt, snow and art—and a voice with which to advocate for diversity and inclusion.
This event is free.
We encourage a suggested $8 donation to help us provide these programs free-of-charge to everyone.

4 African American Women Artists You Should Know

Online Event
Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 6 PM CST
Price: Free
Public Anyone on or off Facebook
It’s no secret, African American women have not been given their proper dues in society or in art history. For centuries, it was exclusively white men who decided what or who was worthy of study- but that’s changing, and black creators, particularly women, are slowly gaining the recognition they deserved all along.
In honor of Women’s History Month, the Artists Archives will present 4 African American Women Artists You Should Know with renowned art historian, author, and artist Amalia Amaki. Held on Wednesday, March 10th at 7:00pm, this hour-long virtual program explores the lives and work of Augusta Christine Fells Savage, Nancy Elizabeth Prophet, Norma Gloria Morgan and Camille Billops, 4 artists known not only for their individual achievement, but for the crucial roles they played in the development of contemporary art.
Savage (1892-1952), a sculptor, teacher, and Harlem community art program director, and Prophet (1890-1960), a celebrated expatriate sculptor in France affiliated with the Negro Colony in Paris, came to the attention of the art world in the climate of the New Negro Movement of the 1920s. Morgan (1928-2017), a printmaker and painter of the Catskills, and Billops (1933-2019), a printmaker, sculptor, documentary filmmaker and archivist, emerged during the of civil rights era, creating revolutionary work that took up the mantle of their predecessors.
As presenter Amalia Amaki describes, “The nature of their art, creative individualism and impact warrants a revisit of work that is under-discussed and historically undervalued. These women changed the face of art through their support, teaching, and most importantly through their creation. Their work is not only masterful, it also represents important eras in the advancement of African American art.”
4 African American Women Artists You Should Know is free and open to the public, and a live audience Q & A will follow Amaki’s richly illustrated lecture.

Largest virtual gathering of influencers, celebrities, community leaders & frontline workers in support of Latinx community COVID recovery.

About this Event

Largest Latinx virtual event to feature Dr. Anthony Fauci, Paola Ramos, John Leguizamo, Giselle Blondet and other renowned doctors, community leaders, activists, celebrities and influencers in a FREE special edition event taking place on Friday, March 12th

The Ad Council and COVID Collaborative today revealed the platform for their COVID-19 Vaccine Education Initiative, “It’s Up To You / De Ti Depende.” Representing one of the largest public education efforts in U.S. history, English and Spanish creative assets will appear nationwide across all media platforms beginning this week. The Ad Council and COVID Collaborative have also partnered with Hispanicize to amplify the campaign message across its expansive virtual platform, leveraging its massive digital reach and long-standing connections within the Latinx community.

Hispanicize #DeTiDepende special edition represents the largest virtual gathering of Latinx influencers, celebrities, community leaders, frontline workers, doctors, entrepreneurs and others aimed at being a force for good around Latinx COVID-19 recovery. Grounded by NGL Collective’s iconic Hispanicize platform, the FREE half-day virtual event will take place on Friday, March 12th from 9am – 12pm PST / 12pm – 3pm EST. Hispanicize #DeTiDepende will cover topics spanning vaccination education, family and wellness, economic recovery, Latinx heroes and more served up in a highly engaging and interactive virtual environment.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hispanicize had previously supported its #UnidosTogether initiative across two hugely successful virtual events that took place in July and October during Hispanic Heritage Month last year. In total the two virtual events attracted over 18,000 attendees, 75+ A-list speakers, 16 sponsors and generated upwards of 60 million impressions.

“As the leading producer of Latinx virtual events, NGL is extremely proud of our Hispanicize franchise and our successful pivot to virtual that enabled us to reach infinitely more people. Hispanicize has always been synonymous with celebrating Latinx unity and empowerment, and a virtual environment has allowed us to bring that message for FREE to tens of thousands at a time. I’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to our partners at the Ad Council and COVID Collaborative for helping to make this special Hispanicize #DeTiDepende event possible at a time when our community needs it most,” said David Chitel, CEO of NGL Collective, owners of Hispanicize.

The Ad Council and COVID Collaborative have undertaken comprehensive and ongoing research to understand audience mindsets and how to effectively message to build vaccine confidence around the “It’s Up To You / De Ti Depende” platform. To date, the initiative has raised over $52 million for a national communications effort to increase confidence in vaccination against the COVID-19 virus. Leading contributors to date include Amazon, Apple, Bank of America, Cisco, CVS Health, Facebook, General Motors, Google and YouTube, the Humana Foundation, NBCUniversal/Comcast, Salesforce, Verizon, Walgreens and Walmart. Significant contributions have also been provided by Adobe, America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the American Heart Association, the American Medical Association, BNY Mellon, Business Roundtable, Citi, Ford Motor Company, JPMorgan Chase, the New York Life Foundation, Stanley Black & Decker, Synchrony, Target, Unilever, Wells Fargo and ViacomCBS.

“We are pleased to partner with Hispanicize as part of our broader efforts to educate and empower people across the country–particularly communities of color who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic–so they can make an informed choice about vaccination for themselves and for their families,” said Lisa Sherman, President and CEO of the Ad Council. “Our extraordinary partners across the communications industry are uniquely positioned to amplify these critical messages at scale. Through this truly unprecedented effort, we can get back to the moments we all miss and save lives.”

In addition to Dr. Anthony Fauci (Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH), the following participants are confirmed for Hispanicize #DeTiDepende, with others to be announced soon; Paola Ramos (Journalist & Author ‘Finding Latinx’), Beto Perez (Founder, Zumba), John Leguizamo (Actor, Activist & NGL Partner), Henry R.

Chicagoland Vigil & Rally for Georgia Shooting Victims: National Day of Action to Stop AAPI Hate

Horner Park, Chicago

Public Anyone on or off Facebook

***Due to incredible interest in attending this event, if you have not already RSVP’d please attend the livestream of the event on NAPAWF’s Facebook page (

https://www.facebook.com/NAPAWF

)***

JOIN US with local Chicago organizations (led by Asian women and femmes with direct ties to AAPI Chicagoland communities) in a rally and vigil to mourn and honor the lives of those murdered in Atlanta, Georgia last Tuesday (3/16), especially the intended targets – 6 Asian American women. We will rally across the street from the historic HANA Center building at Horner Park.
A semi-permanent altar set-up with cross-cultural mourning practices, full program TBA.
**This is an IN-PERSON, OUTDOOR, SOCIALLY DISTANT EVENT. Masks are REQUIRED.**
As a part of National Day of Action against anti-Asian hate and violence, we rally to demand solutions that center Asian women, femmes, and elders, who are disproportionately impacted by the violence.
We REFUSE to ignore that this rise in anti-Asian harassment and violence has disproportionately impacted women and femmes, who know firsthand that sexual violence, sexism, and racism are intertwined and steeped in the history of US imperialism.
Together, we call our local elected officials to have a response which centers Asian American women, femmes, and elders – NOT increased police presence in AAPI neighborhoods.

Faheem Majeed Studio

+ Tempestt Hazel in conversation via a virtual program with

The Art Institute of Chicago

From the Center, a retrospective of Faheem Majeed’s works from the past 20 years is also currently on view at the South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC) until March 27th!!

Following, Majeed will create an ambitious new installation for the Hyde Park Art Center that furthers his investigation of culturally specific institutions by focusing on the history and memory of the historic South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC). Majeed will produce a monumental charcoal rubbing of the building façade of the SSCAC as the central focus of his first large-scale solo exhibition. In addition to this new fabric work, Majeed will also be incorporating his ongoing series of reused wooden planks entitled Planting and Maintaining a Perennial Garden repurposed from the SSCAC’s Burroughs Gallery. For this installation, the wooden planks will take the form of a platform that will both raise the massive building-sized fabric rubbing on a pedestal and be host to performance and discussion. The exhibition will be on view from April 15–July 11, 2021.

Racial Justice League Book ClubYWCA
Exclusive to Racial Justice League Members
Being part of the YWCA’s Racial Justice League means more than taking our pledge. We encourage our individual and organizational members to make specific commitments to advance racial justice.
One way to take action is to learn about systemic racism and its pervasive effects. The Racial Justice League Book Club provides an opportunity to hear from leading voices on civil rights and the history of racism, and a safe space to discuss the specific impacts on our communities.
I Am Not Your Negro Book CoverIn honor of Black History Month, we’ve selected our second Book Club Book: I Am Not Your Negro, by James Baldwin. The book, and accompanying film, provide insight into Baldwin’s relationships with three famous, assassinated friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
While it can be easy to think of each as just a historical figure, the novel puts their individuality back in the forefront as people who just wanted their humanity recognized and respected.
The virtual Book Club discussion will be:
March 4, 2021
8:00 – 9:00 PM CST
Support women- and minority-owned independent businesses by purchasing I Am Not Your Negro through one of these suggested retailers:
• Afriware Books, Co. (Maywood, IL)
