Mayoral candidate Dorothy Brown continues “Listening Tour” with next stop in the South Lawndale community
Issues surrounding immigration and help for ‘dreamers discussed in most recent meeting
(CHICAGO) – August 22, 2018 – Mayoral candidate Dorothy Brown will continue her Chicago Listening Tour on Tuesday, September 11 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at 2242 S. Damen Ave at Lincoln United Methodist Church. There she will hear from the communities of South Lawndale, Brighton Park, New City, Lower Westside, McKinley Park, Garfield Ridge and Archer Heights.
Earlier this month, Brown visited with resident of Humboldt Park, West Town, Hermosa, Belmont Craigin, Mount Claire, Dunning, Irving Park and Portage Park. Her community meeting was held at Robles De Justicia, 4013 W. Armitage Ave., where residents shared their concerns about immigration and the separation of families, obtaining legal status for Dreamers, and maintaining Chicago’s sanctuary city status. Concerns about accessible health care was discussed, with attendees offering that life expectancy among the undocumented can be cut by up to 20 years.
Issues common to many of the “Listening Tour” stops disused at Robles De Justicia included police brutality, violence, unemployment, and high property taxes all issues they want to see addressed by Dorothy Brown as the next Mayor of the city of Chicago.
Each of Candidate Brown’s meetings are documented, and the information gathered will be used to help formulate Brown’s platform for moving the city of Chicago forward.
As she stated when she announced her bid for Chicago’s mayor, Brown believes to make better choices for the entire city, residents must be heard and their opinions must be considered. This Tour is one tool Brown is using to effectively set goals for the city of Chicago under a Brown administration.
