If you've read any of our recent emails, you've seen the work that the Just Cause campaign is doing to work more closely with the Chicago Healthy Homes Ordinance (CHHO) campaign. Both campaigns have the same core goals: creating safe, healthy, and secure shelter for all of Chicago's renters, a reality that too many renters, especially in Black and Brown neighborhoods, cannot take for granted. Tomorrow, organizers from both campaigns will be speaking at a Housing Justice Summit co-presented by the Chicago Area Fair Housing Alliance and Housing Choice Partners, sharing why we're working so closely together on two critical bills.
Registration for the event is available at bit.ly/HJS_22. The Just Cause/CHHO presentation will take place from 11:20 am to 12:20 pm, with the rest of the program running all day from 9:30 am to 4 pm. Tomorrow's programming will all occur on Zoom, while the second day of the conference will be hosted in person at the Experimental Station in Woodlawn, located at 6100 S. Blackstone. Both days are open to the general public, so please join us if you're interested in learning more about these campaigns, or about housing justice in general!
In addition to this exciting panel discussion, we are also happy to announce that the Justice League has a new website, and is hiring a new staff member! Our website is available at chicagohousingjusticeleague.org, and shares some of the critical work that we are doing. In addition, the League is now actively searching for additional capacity through the creation of a second part-time organizer position. Details for the role are available at tinyurl.com/CHJLNewJob, and applicants are encouraged to apply or reach out with questions as soon as possible. We are thrilled to be expanding the work that we're doing as a coalition, and building support for much-needed policy change in the city of Chicago. If our work inspires you and you'd like to consider joining us, please reach out!
We hope you're staying safe and healthy in the midst of yet another Chicago summer heat wave. Looking forward to seeing applications for our new position, and to connecting with more people at the discussion tomorrow!
