How does Chicago get the funding to pay for all of the services it provides for city residents? Who has a say in how the money is spent? On Sunday, October 13th, join us in the NSBC library for a discussion with ONE Northside about how the budget works and how we can actively participate in the campaign for an equitable city budget that funds mental health clinics, affordable housing, and jobs programs by raising new revenue from corporations and the city’s wealthiest residents.
On Saturday, October 19, ONE Northside will also be hosting a Town Hall with our alderpeople. Attend this Town Hall to learn about the City budget and make your voice heard! ONE Northside supports a more equitable city budget that addresses the needs of all Chicagoans, especially those who are increasingly locked out of the process. Should the budget address low-income housing and mental health? Who should have the greatest tax burden? Come learn about and help shape the way your money is spent. The Town Hall is from 2:00-4:00 pm at Alternatives Youth Center, 4370 N. Sheridan.
ONE Northside is a mixed-income, multi-ethnic, intergenerational organization, of which NSBC is a member, that unites our diverse communities. We build collective power to eliminate injustice through bold and innovative community organizing. We accomplish this through developing grassroots leaders and acting together to effect change.
