Support Viaduct Sanitation Program

Folks we had a community meeting today to discuss viaduct sanitation initiative. Another news story coming out on Monday and I will post. We also have a dedicated site to access the petition on change.org. Should be easier to remember.

New site link: www.chicagoviaduct.com (its up and running)

Please share with ALL friends, family, church members, and businesses (include on social media too- (facebook, twitter, instragram, & tumblr). Out of state? No prob? We welcome your support. Please encourage folks to share their story about why they believe we need improved viaduct sanitation programs.

    Hello, I live in Pilsen and we recently started a new initiative called #pilsencares. Our community has struggled for a long time with unsanitary viaducts and we believe this negatively impacts health and safety. #Pilsencares is collaborating with non-profit agencies to include other Chicago communities and support a citywide viaduct sanitation program. We had a news story that aired on Fox32 News last week (http://www.myfoxchicago.com/story/26491819/chicagoan-starts-petition-to-clean-up-viaducts%23.VA_R8t2fuMM.facebook)

    We have another story coming out on Monday (will post update). Please take a moment to read our change.org petition and say YES to ROUTINE viaduct sanitation across the city. We also have a dedicated site now to access the petition on change.org. Should be easier to remember.
