Please attend our monthly membership meeting on Saturday, August 9, at 10am, at 1020 W. Bryn Mawr, 1st Floor.
TENANT HOUSING RESOURCE ACTION TEAM (THREAT)
We are excited to announce that we are initiating a unique housing program called the Tenant Housing Resource Action Team (THREAT).
This campaign will educate, inform, and support tenants who are
struggling to live in affordable housing with decent conditions. THREAT
will provide intake hours for tenants to gain information on their
rights and what they can do. Additionally, THREAT will identify
buildings that are in danger of being shut down or “flipped” and will
work with tenants who are ready to organize their neighbors.
The major part of the August 9th meeting will be discussing and trading ideas about the program.
We are looking for up to 12 housing-savvy volunteers to join THREAT
as Housing Committee members and/or tenant Support Counselors. We need
dedicated people who are willing to apprentice to be top experts on
housing/tenant issues. We need people who are able to commit to eight
hours of training and at least two days a month for three months to help
tenants resolve housing issues, as well as to promote the value of
organizing for power with NA4J.

and moderate-income people to fight for fair housing and living wage
jobs. Meet Elce at the membership meeting on Saturday.
Thank you all for joining us for our
"Winter Survivors" BBQ! We had a lot of great food, met some new
people, and reconnected with some of our long-time members. And the
weather was, well, pretty much what you would expect on the first full summer day in Chicago - very chilly, foggy, windy, and misty.

NA4J is a member of CODE, fighting for an elected school board. CODE is mounting a civil rights lawsuit to challenge our unelected Board of Education.
CODE needs to raise $20K to fund this lawsuit. Please consider donating to support this cause. NA4J has long been in the fight for an elected representative school board, and we support this effort to challenge the constitutionality of our current unelected, mayoral appointed Board of Ed. The unelected school board denies us voting rights, and we are being taxed billions without representation.
