Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce will partner with the Midwest Workers Association to fight against poverty in the Rogers Park neighborhood.

On Wednesday November 8th, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce President, Bill Morton, traveled to the Back of the Yards neighborhood to meet with the Midwest Workers Association at their headquarters to find a solution to poverty in the Rogers Park neighborhood.

The Midwest Workers Association is a free and voluntary unincorporated membership association which services workers, temporary workers and other low-paid workers and their families. The organization’s mission is to alleviate our member’s most important-poverty- at the root.

“We will participate with the Midwest Workers Association at future Illinois Commerce Commission meetings to fight for keeping utilities affordable for residences because nobody should live without heat in the winter time” said Bill Morton, president of the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce.

The actions that Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce will take to support Midwest Workers Association are distributing the Association’s postcards, inviting them to speaking engagements in Rogers Park, and offering outreach table opportunities at our local stores.

  • Will the RP C of C "fight against poverty" by advising people to get jobs, learn a marketable skill, learn English, not excessively drink or do drugs or just take responsibility to act responsibly? Nah!

    Gene, I will ask him. He lives in Uptown. Cleaner is named Norma. Since she works alone she actually prefers small apartments/condos. And RP should be close enough for her. Check back tomorrow.
