Reimagine Chicago Mayoral Forum

January 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Decades of failed policies have devastated Chicago’s neighborhoods, creating a city that is becoming increasingly unlivable for anybody who isn’t rich and well connected. Right now we have an opportunity to turn that around and reimagine what the future of our city looks like.

As Chicago voters prepare to go to the polls to choose our next Mayor and City Council, we have an opportunity to demand that candidates stand with us on the issues we care about. Together, we can reimagine a Chicago that invests in our neighborhoods, schools, and services.

We #ReimagineChicago to be..

A city where there is mass investment of public resources in education, healthcare, and public transportation and investment in neglected communities, especially Black and Brown neighborhoods across the city.

A real sanctuary city for all communities. A city where there are no new investments in policing or policies that criminalize and put at risk Black people, immigrants and all people of color, such as the Chicago’s Gang Database used to racially profile our communities.

A city with affordable housing and healthy neighborhoods where everyone has access to clean water and housing they can afford.

A city with an economy that works for all Chicagoans not just downtown developers. A city where everybody has access to good jobs by eliminating racial disparities in employment, wages and working conditions.

A city where funds are diverted from policies and programs that increase racial and income inequality, like the TIF program and Chicago’s $4 million/day policing budget and where Chicago’s wealthiest pay their fair share.
