How can we as a community work on reducing the amount of pet waste in Pilsen? Every block has at least 2 piles of pet waste around my area, 16th to 18th between Halsted and Racine. The alderman signs are not working. At this point, its about getting together as a community because it has gone too far. Not only that, my dog tends to eat the waste. So let's save our community and my dogs breath. Should we encourage...
How can we as a community work on reducing the amount of pet waste in Pilsen? Every block has at least 2 piles of pet waste around my area, 16th to 18th between Halsted and Racine. The alderman signs are not working. At this point, its about getting together as a community because it has gone too far. Not only that, my dog tends to eat the waste. So let's save our community and my dogs breath. Should we encourage businesses and home owners in the area to provide waste bags? I know that it's not their problem, but if we care about our neighborhood, our health, the expense could be ever changing. Beer and alcohol bottles are next. I love the culture, small businesses, and the food carts in the morning. It's a really special place to live. Please. Ideas are welcome!

GREAT PEOPLE DOING GREAT THINGS In The Ward: Youth Guidance - Becoming A Man This week I joined the Mayor at Benito Juarez Community Academy to take part in what turned out to be an amazingly inspiring school based, support program called Becoming A Man (BAM). This social-emotional program offered by Youth Guidance helps at-risk young men in middle and high school navigate the difficult circumstances that threaten their futures, by creating a safe space in which boys are free to explore the challenges in their lives. BAM’s model revolves around mentoring these young men to “think about their thinking,” by giving them the tools to resolve conflicts, express themselves positively, practice integrity and set ambitious goals for their futures. Put simply, BAM’s program is about getting to Chicago’s boys before gangs do, (and minimizing school drop out). The BAM “circle” exercise was particularly moving for me because it invoked a lot of feelings and vulnerability from these wonderful young men. We finished with a closing “BAM out” ritual that ended with a special handshake while touching our chest near our heart, to demonstrate everyone is connected. To date, Youth Guidance has served 6150 young men in roughly 100 Chicago public schools. Some key achievements include contributing to a 19% increase with on-time graduation rates, and reducing violent crime arrests by 50%. I strongly encourage you to learn more about this outstanding program: http://www.emcf.org/grantees/youth-guidance/. A special thank you to Benito Juarez Community Academy for offering this incredible program at their school, and for inviting me to participate. #BAM #BecomingAMan #YouthMentorship #BenitoJuarez #PrideofPilsen #GreatPeopleDoingGreatThings
