Lift the Ban Coalition Direct Action
August 18, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0
Chicago DSA, with the Lift the Ban Coalition, will be hosting a direct action on Saturday, August 18th. At 10:30 am, we will march from Manor Park (4626 N Manor Ave.) to State Senate President John Cullerton’s house. There, we will hold a press conference about the movement to introduce statewide rent control measures and we will call for Cullerton to cosponsor our rent control bill, SB3512, and assign it to a committee when the legislature is back in session in November. We will be occupying the space around Cullerton’s house, but we are not trying to take arrest at this action. We want to send the message that “we can’t afford to stay in our communities, so we’re sleeping here”–accordingly, bring blankets, pillows, sleeping bags, and lawn chairs.
Meet at 10:30 at 4626 N Manor Ave., 60625. March to Cullerton’s house arriving at 11:00 am.
