We would like your help with an urgent social media push to support accessible, affordable housing on Chicago's Northwest Side.  Mayor Emanuel and the City of Chicago have the chance to fund a proposal for 80 affordable, accessible apartments in Jefferson Park, with most apartments set aside for people with physical disabilities, low-wage working families, and military veterans in need.  The Mayor will make his decision about whether to support the construction of this affordable housing in the next few weeks, so your voice is needed now.

Mayor Emanuel needs to know that there is a large groundswell of support for this proposal.  He needs to know that we will not be shouted down by a few voices of opposition who are using racist fear-mongering to keep the Northwest Side closed.  We know our community is better than that.  Let's amplify a positive message together about how we can build a more inclusive and compassionate neighborhood!

We are Neighbors for Affordable Housing in Jefferson Park, a local grassroots organization that has organized a community of care and openness to advocate for more affordable, accessible, and integrated housing on the Northwest Side.  We are preparing this social media push for Wednesday, October 11th to raise awareness of the need for affordable housing in our neighborhood and to show opponents and Mayor Emanuel that we won’t be intimidated by hatred.  With your involvement, we will be releasing the video linked here to an audience of tens of thousands via a social media app called "Thunderclap". Our immediate goal is to get the word out about this growing campaign, create some buzz, and make sure that people who support affordable housing know that there is a growing movement of people on the North and Northwest sides committed to taking action in our own communities and across the city to make our communities more inclusive.  Together, through efforts like this, we can lessen the city's segregation, and contribute to building a more equitable city.

There are two ways you can help!

First, please sign up to share this message and video on your Twitter or Facebook pages (or both) by clicking the links above.  The "Thunderclap" social media service will then post the video on the social media accounts of all of us, at the same appointed time, creating a big "boost" to the post and amplifying our collective reach significantly!  Thunderclap requires you to sign in using your Twitter and Facebook but is 100% secure and used by many non-profits and businesses.


Second, please ask your friends to sign up as well to share the video.


Please take these easy steps to help.   Just a few clicks from each of us will make a difference!


Every home is a changed life.
