The Great Displacement: Mayoral Forum on Reversing African-American Push-out and Building a Chicago for the Many

The next mayor of Chicago has an historic opportunity to make Chicago a sanctuary city for all working class, Black, and Latinx families at a time when disinvestment is pushing hundreds of thousands of African-Americans out of Chicago and squeezing working-class Latinx and white communities ever tighter.
Come hear from leading mayoral candidates on how they will stop the pushout of working people and build a Chicago for the many, not the few.

Three mayoral candidates will be invited to join the top two leading candidates based on a grassroots vote.

Text MAYOR to 738674 to vote!

Sponsors (in formation): Action Now, ATU Local 308, Chicago Teachers Union, Grassroots Illinois Action, National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 11, SEIU Healthcare Illinois Indiana, UE Western Region, United Working Families.
