Support Viaduct Sanitation & Safety Initative

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...

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.

New site link: http://chicagoviaduct.com/

Tweet pics of your viaduct conditions to @chicagoviaduct

Please share with ALL friends, family, church members, and businesses (include on social media sites too- Facebook, twitter, instagram, & 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.

A local non-resident is proposing (actually has permits already) for a 5 story rental building on a small lot on Flournoy just west of Oakley. If you drive through or even look at this lovely old,historic neighborhood you can only imagine what an eyesore it will be and what a nightmare construction will bring to drivers on Oakley, The neighborhood residents DO NOT want this monstrosity and are gathering as many signatures as possible on an online petition in hopes...

If you drive through or even look at this lovely old,historic neighborhood you can only imagine what an eyesore it will be and what a nightmare construction will bring to drivers on Oakley, The neighborhood residents DO NOT want this monstrosity and are gathering as many signatures as possible on an online petition in hopes of convincing our soon to be Alderman Irwin that this monstrosity will be an enduring monument to his lack of respect for the neighbors who have to live with it. Please help us out and sign the petition...it only takes a minute...the link is below

    Isn't it time we focus on Breast Cancer Prevention? It sickens me seeing contributors to breast cancer, like Avon, trying to less their guilt.

  • Hi Robin. Prevention comes from awareness, so I'm not sure what your issue is. Also, if you actually went to the website to see what this contest supports, maybe you'd have recognized that if UI Health wins, we get nothing but instead a $15,000 donation goes to Imerman Angels (a...

    Hi Robin. Prevention comes from awareness, so I'm not sure what your issue is. Also, if you actually went to the website to see what this contest supports, maybe you'd have recognized that if UI Health wins, we get nothing but instead a $15,000 donation goes to Imerman Angels (a Chicago charity that assists people affected by all types of cancer). I'm sorry you're "tired and cranky." I don't appreciate you attempting to bring negativity into my post, it's completely unnecessary. Feel free to comment back, but I'm not into catty cyber conversations, so I probably won't reply.

  • Beyond the cremonial unveiling of a statue of Paul Laurence Dunbar,what is going on with the future educational curriculum of the underserved, disadvantaged predominantly AFRICAN-AMERICAN students who attend this revitalized urban high school campus in the historic Bronzeville community?

  • Certainly there must be some innovative writers workshops featuring the literary contributions of writers like Paul Lawrence Dunbar and other literary giants of the Black Cultural Renaissance that took place in Bronzeville! :-)
