Protect Our Community: Rogers Park Neighborhood Action Meeting

Mon, Feb 13 from 7pm – 8:30pm

Living Waters Church, 6808 N. Ashland Ave., Chicago, IL

(corner of Pratt and Ashland)

Are you a resident of Rogers Park who is deeply concerned about the actions taken by the new President against Muslims, immigrants, and refugees in America? Are you worried about how your neighbors, friends, and loved ones might be targeted?

Join with other Rogers Park neighbors for a community-wide meeting. We’ll learn more about the implications of these new executive orders and brainstorm ways we can join together to keep our neighbors and neighborhood safe. One aspect of this will be creating a rapid response network aimed at protecting residents from unwanted incursions by government agencies. This network will:

1) Warn people if there is an incursion by law enforcement aimed at vulnerable communities.

2) Create and activate a safe harbor network for people needing sanctuary or help.

3) Mobilize the community to oppose the incursion and resolve it peacefully.

Organized by concerned Rogers Park neighbors, Network 49, Reclaim Chicago, A Just Harvest, and ONE Northside.
