Thanks for your help

    The area is definitely safer than it was a few years ago. I walk my dog all the time and have never had an issue in the 5 years I've been here.

    Need I repeat myself? Let's have a march to City Hall and have a rally at the front door. This is my third suggestion for us to do that. With a bus or two trailing, those who get tired can ride for a while.

    This Library will not be a gift, no questions asked.
    That was a cute little press release last week, but we need to be bolder in our statement.

    The University of Chicago is being allowed to change their bid, after the filing dead line. If I'm wrong in my understanding, please somebody explain to me.

    I wouldn't be able to walk all the way, but will participate

Presidential Library

Several months ago, I proposed that North Lawndale campaign to get the Barack Obama Presidential Library located here. That idea was quickly dismissed because Hyde Park seemed like THE logical place for it. There is a serious discussion about why it should NOT be at (or maybe even near?) the University of Chicago. Think of what a presidential library could do for our neighborhood. Take a look at this interview from channel 11. http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2012/06/26/u-c-prof-obamas-library-should-stay-away

If you agree, now is the time to start campaigning for its placement here.

  • Can we get a national campaign going for the west side? There are "North Lawndales" all over the country that are overlooked. This can help change focus. Here is what I'm sending to all of my out of town contacts.

    Can we get a national campaign going for the west side? There are "North Lawndales" all over the country that are overlooked. This can help change focus. Here is what I'm sending to all of my out of town contacts.

    I am trying to get support for a project which can have national significance. There are campaigns going on to get President Obama's presidential library built near the University of Chicago's campus (south side of the city). The Obama's have many ties to that area so people tend to conclude that that is where it will be.
    However, the west side of Chicago tends to be the poorer area. It is also an old area of the city. It is where Dr King moved to and lived in 1966 to make a difference. However, after his assasination, the area sank deeper into dysfunction.
    President Obama has been inextricably linked with Dr. King. What a public and permanent sign of honor and respect to help fulfill Dr. King's mission here on the westside of Chicago.
    Imagine the impact that could make on depressed areas all over the country. Think of how much history could be preserved. We need suggestions, email and letter writing campaigns from across the country asking the Obama's to consider placing his presidential library on the west side of Chicago.
