Pritzkerville: 24-Hour Tent City for Housing Justice in Illinois

June 30 @ 12:00 pm - July 1 @ 1:00 pm CDT

Sponsored by Lift the Ban Coalition | KOCO | Lugenia Burns HOPE Center | CDSA | Sunrise Movement | Lawyer’s Committee for Better Housing | One Northside | Northside Action for Justice | Pilsen Alliance | Chicago Teachers Union | Cook County College Teachers Union| SEIU HCII | Autonomous Tenants Union | 25th Ward IPO | 33rd Ward Working Families |

90 days into the coronavirus crisis. Illinois has not gotten the systemic change that our housing system needs. We got empty pledges and inadequate funds. The eviction moratorium ends July 27. Politicians are talking about police violence now. When the eviction wave comes, the police will enforce it — violently. It’s black and brown tenants they will evict.

COME AT 12:30 PM FOR THE MARCH. TRUST US.

Later, there will be film screenings, teach-ins on tenant rights and the real estate lobby, a banner drop and more. Bring a tent to stay overnight if you can. There will be a car caravan and social media component as well.

We need the Governor to act to reform this unjust, unstable system: Rent control. #CancelRent. #CancelMortgages.
