    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.
