Tri Taylor needs more murals

I'm the local artist who was born, raised, and continuing to live in the Tri Taylor neighborhood. The area is rich in history and diversity. This mural I've posted is a labor of love and something I did without any raising of funds. It's my vision to create more in the this small pocket of Chicago. Anyone who may be of help with finding sponsors or resources, feel free to comment. I would also like the community involved in the process, as well.

  • Michael Ramstedt Managing Broker, Krain Real Estate

    I thought this was a different location. So this replaced the old mural you had there?

  • Victor Lopez Free lance artist

    No, this is mural is still there. I'm looking to do others in the area

Progressives, parents react to Karen Lewis decision not to run for mayor

WBEZ interviewed people regarding their thoughts on Karen Lewis' decision not to enter the Mayoral race.

Here's the link.https://soundcloud.com/wbez/progressives-parents-react-to-karen-lewis-decision-not-to-run-for-mayor#c=0&t=0:00

My comments come in at about 3:15.

  • Amara who?

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Valerie - that was not my intention! I have a tremendous amount of respect for Karen Lewis; I heard her speak last year in Evanston and was blown away! I am saddened by her illness, and sending lots of positive, healing energy her way. That said, I never took her seriously as a candidate for mayor

    Antonio - Amara Enyia is running for mayor. I believe that she is the best candidate for mayor since Harold Washington

This council has a great deal of power under Senate Bill 51. The problem is companies almost never show up. They have to have something to advocate for. This is the council that decides rather companies receive waivers for BEP participation. There are many other issues that they deal with. My only suggestion is that when you go to the council have your company in position to do business. Make sure you are in good standing with the state. It is always helpful that you are certified with CMS as a BEP company.

North Lawndale is its own unique entity; a community full of the good and too much of the bad. Out of that community, desperate for social relevance, a committee was formed; formed to regain that relevance and more. It was our bid, your bid, the bid born, developed and presented by our community that formed a partnership with a major university. This is something that is crucial to realize; our community, your community, my community, rose up and dared play with the, “Big Boys” and here we stand. Out of 13 contenders, from New York to Hawaii, here we stand in the Final Four. That is something for all of us, young and old, to be proud of; one of the few times on the national stage in a positive way since Dr. King and here we stand; a real contender. New York, Hawaii, the University of Chicago and City Hall are all looking at North Lawndale right now. What do we do with this unprecedented attention? Walk with Pride, North Lawndale
Here’s a little background on the status of your bid. http://www.gazettechicago.com/index/2014/10/uic-is-finalist-for-obama-presidential-library/

West Side Nonprofits Rise to the Challenge

A cohort of nonprofit organizations on Chicago’s West Side have recently signed on to take the 30-Day Compliance Challenge. The program was developed by Valerie F.

A cohort of nonprofit organizations on Chicago’s West Side have recently signed on to take the 30-Day Compliance Challenge. The program was developed by Valerie F. Leonard to help nonprofits increase their fundraising capacity by ensuring that they are current with all the necessary filings at the state and federal levels within 30 days. This will remove one of the many barriers to fundraising, freeing organizations to focus more on the day-to-day activities of running programs and services.

Leonard, an expert in community and organizational development, cited the need for organizations to step back and review their nonprofit filings. “I work with organizations on a number of issues, including strategic planning, financial management and board development”, she said. “What I found, is, no matter what issue I’m hired to address, all roads lead to compliance. Organizations-- large and small-- have challenges navigating the requirements of state and federal reporting for nonprofits.”
