#Pritzkerville: Tell JB to Cancel Rent & Mortgage & Lift the Ban on Rent Control!

June 7 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT

Massive waves of unemployment caused by the coronavirus shelter-in-place orders have left millions of Illinoisans struggling to pay rent, with our elected leaders largely refusing to address the issue. This wave of unemployment has disproportionately affected our most vulnerable communities, and now economists are projecting a potential 45% increase in the homeless population across the country. We need to send our messages that developers must be regulated – evictions need to be blocked, rent should be canceled, and the ban on rent control must be lifted!

Join us on Sunday, May 31st, 2020 beginning at 10am for a 24-hour occupation of downtown Chicago.

We will be enforcing social distancing and mask-wearing. Come for a couple hours, or stay overnight. Participate on social media with the hashtags #CancelRentJB, #LiftTheBan and #Pritzkerville.

Contact Helena at [email protected] or via Slack with any questions.
