Last night, Southeast Chicago churches and community organizations held a forum to raise up issues to candidates who were running for 10th Ward Alderman and Mayor for the City of Chicago. Sponsoring organizations included: Claretian Associates, Alliance of the Southeast, Centro de Trabajadores Unidos, Coalition for a Lakeside CBA, Family Rescue, Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, and Pilgrim Baptist Church who hosted the event. There were over 200 local residents in attendance who asked candidates to speak on issues such as affordable housing, labor, immigration, domestic violence, and more!
