Today I had the honor of sharing space at three 9/11 remembrances.

9/11, and the years following, was a time of unfathomable suffering, shock and trauma for all of us. First responders in NYC and elsewhere, survivors, Arab-Americans subject to unfair and hurtful suspicion and detention, families that lost loved ones, families that to this day suffer health issues, and witnesses here and abroad.

Remembering is a duty.
Collective memory is a duty.

Painful events like the enormity of 9/11 are never about just one day. They are about the shockwaves of hurt to follow and taking action to take care of each other, during and after traumatic events, and everyday.

Illinois House Passes A Sweeping Energy Bill That Would End The State’s Reliance On Fossil Fuels

The House just passed a long-overdue energy and environment package to put Illinois on a path to 100% clean energy by 2050. This bill has nation-leading equity provisions, holds utilities accountable, and decarbonizes our energy sector while protecting existing jobs and investing in workforce development to create new ones. Residents of the 19th House District made it clear early on in my term that this was an issue they cared a great deal about. A special thank you to advocates in the district who called/met with me/or wrote me to make their voices heard - Susan L Zimny, Collin Seaman, Mary Vasquez and Louis Nowak. The Senate will reconvene in the coming days to take a vote and send this historic legislation to the Governor’s office.

Environmentalists and labor unions unite behind the bill to halt carbon emissions by 2050 and save several nuclear plants — but at a cost to consumers.

Here in Springfield to take action on ethics and a long overdue energy and environment bill. As Speaker Welch said today, “In the past 24 hours, every one of us has thought about our ‘why’.” This is a big day that’s got me thinking about changing how we do things from the inside out and making real actionable change on climate.

September 9, 2021 - Lindsey LaPointe State Representative

The recently uncovered words and actions of Alderman Gardiner directed at city council colleagues, constituents, and female staff are hurtful and disappointing to all of us who expect and deserve so much more from our elected officials and our workplaces. I fully support the processes initiated this week at the city’s Board of Ethics and the Cook County Democratic Party to better ensure an inclusive government that serves everyone.

At long last, as Wildlight Yoga approaches its three year anniversary, the practice is back in person, safely distanced, at a new location in the heart of Six Corners. I stopped by this weekend to see the space coming along in its new home and it had the same calming and rejuvenating vibe. Bonus is the wonderful view of the beautiful Portage Theater sign from across Milwaukee Avenue. I knew nothing about yoga when I walked into the studio three years ago and felt completely welcome and in the right place. Check out Wildlight! Congrats Kelli Wefenstette and team!

Pullman National Monument celebrates worker history at Labor Day weekend grand opening

This year is an extra special Labor Day weekend in Chicago because it’s the grand opening of the Pullman National Monument and State Historic site. The weekend’s activities wrap today, but this monument will live on as a new asset and emblem for the nation, Chicago and Pullman just as our gratitude and support for the ongoing labor movement live on.

Today, I had the honor of standing with Governor Pritzker, my colleagues Leaders Rep Delia Ramirez and Senator Omar Aquino, leaders at La Case Norte and many others to announce an Intragency Task Force on Homelessness here in Illinois. Ending homelessness and ensuring every neighbor has access to shelter and supportive services has long been possible in Illinois and nationwide, but our collective political, economic and even bureaucratic will hasn’t been focused enough. It's time to focus, both here in the neighborhood and across the entire state. I'm lucky to have collaborators in many spaces (General Assembly, Working Group on Homelessness in Jefferson Park) to comprehensively support our neighbors who are struggling.

Happy to share that HB3849, or the Supported Decision-Making Agreement Act., has been signed by Governor Pritzker. This new law will help people with disabilities live more independently while still providing support from family, friends, and community when making certain life decisions. Thank you to our legislative partners, Illinois Guardianship and Advocacy Commission, and Senator Feigenholtz, for working to bring this option to Illinois.

Service opportunity at one of our bedrock food pantries on the far NW side! Scroll to bottom of the post:

It's a team, a family, a community, a way of life to help others!

Well, not only did volunteers work to obtain top notch produce with local farmers at the Park Ridge Farmers Market this weekend, but the pantry obtained a tip from a produce truck not able to make its delivery. Volunteers at the pantry swooped in this weekend and unloaded amazing produce this weekend so that it can be included for families this coming week. The pantry was able to obtain excellent cauliflower, potatoes and other items! Of course, it poured rain when this happened, but it speaks to the amazing and dedicated volunteers that are at the pantry!

Right now, we are in search for grocery delivery drivers. Drivers can expect to make 3-4 deliveries when available. Delivery times are:

Monday between 10-12pm
Monday @ 5:00pm
Tuesday between 10-12pm

If you would like to be a delivery driver, email Joe at [email protected]

Throwback Music Fest

This weekend is the Throwback Music Festival in Gladstone Park! Our far NWside is full of amazing leaders and neighbors who are constantly giving of their time to build community and the Gladstone Park Chamber of Commerce and the Gladstone Park Neighborhood Association are a great example. C'mon out to the remaining two days of the festival Saturday 11am to 10pm and Sunday 11am to 9pm. The festival has: three full days of music from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s; a pet costume parade (Saturday at 11am); kids activities (Sat-Sun 1pm - 5pm); tons of food and drink; a Heroes celebration to recognize first responders, frontline workers and veterans (Sunday at 11am); a Miss Throwback Pin-Up contest (Sunday); and a classic car show (all festival). As with every great festival, there is (responsible) drinking outside with friends and neighbors. The community hopes to see you as we close out summer! I am so proud to partner with many other community leaders to sponsor this fest.

Travel back in time through the music and fun of the 1950s, 60s, 70, 80s, and 90s!

State Representative Lindsey LaPointe

District Office: 6315 N. Milwaukee Ave. Chicago, 60646

District Number: (773) 647 - 1174

I'm proud to represent you and your family as the new State Representative for the 19th District in the Illinois House. I am a social worker by training and at heart, and I’ve spent recent years in public policy, state government, and community work.

I am originally from Maine where my mom was a social worker and my dad worked in politics. The values they instilled in me - like compassion, service, and using our short time on earth to improve our communities – are so core to who I am that I don’t know any other way to be. My mom worked hard running a single-parent household during my teenage years and she passed away from cancer two weeks after I graduated college, plunging me into adulthood at 22. I was devastated, but awed by her support network and her impact on the world. At my mom’s service, a woman named Tracy spontaneously spoke. She was a former foster care client from my mom’s social work days in the 80s and she spoke of the life-changing impact my mom’s compassion had on her. Through my grief, sitting at my mom’s service at age 22, I was floored and forever changed by this stranger’s words. From that day forward, I have seen every moment as an opportunity to make someone’s life better and to improve our communities – through social work, changing laws, and community building. Soon after that, I started my first post-college job as a counselor for kids with special needs. Fifteen years later I’m here in the 19th District, still driven by those same values of compassion and service.

Please join us in supporting one of our favorite places to eat: Manny's Deli. 4th generation, family owned business working hard to stay open WITHOUT laying off staff. PLEASE HELP THEM OUT! Order online for pick up AT OUR HOUSE in Norwood Park (5457 North Nordica)! Monday, October 19, 2020 4:30-5:00 p.m.
Good to meet you this weekend! Thanks for visiting our block and introducing yourself to the neighborhood!
Thank you Lindsey for your support of Manny's Deli. Thanks to those who ordered. We are going to do this again next month so keep watching this page! https://www.facebook.com/113514638682869/posts/3664425623591735/
Due to the rain forecast for tomorrow evening, Movies Under The Stars has been rescheduled to our rain date, THIS SATURDAY, August 29th!! See you @ sunset on the Schurz Great Lawn! https://www.facebook.com/events/356141132070141/
2 Questions for my lovely State Rep & team - 1) Via your networks -- Are you aware of a local agency, refugee assistance group, neighborhood family in need ... that could use some gently used baby gear?? (stroller, Pack 'n Play, etc.) 2) Do you happen to know of any free Community Shredding Events this fall ?? I have the.papers! 😉
It is the top post on Mr Plummer’s public Facebook pag. Apparently, he’s not the only colleague of yours saying this. Probably should be addressed to the constituents as to exactly what this is.... And thank you, my family an I are well. I hope you and yours are too.
I am a bit confused. Can you explain what Jason Plummer is talking about then and what exactly was Bill 357? A lot of your constituents think that you all voted for a pay raise for yourselves. Jason Plummer is a colleague, correct?
Did you really vote “yes” to give yourself a pay increase during a pandemic when millions of people are out of work and while Illinois is seeking a bailout from the feds? Can you explain your reasoning behind this please?
Thank-you for your timely updates on the pandemic and all that entails. I observe you working very hard for your potential constituents. That is good to see especially at this time. For those of you who are paying attention, remember this when it is time to vote.Here is someone who cares about the people. That is the character trait we need desperately in our leadership. Thank-you Lindsey and thank-you to your staff.
Hello, I am wondering where Representative LaPointe stands on HB4870. Thank you- IL voter
Thank you for coming out tonight Lindsey. It was nice to meet you.
It was great meeting you on Friday evening. I'm happy that our Representative actually visits their constituents to introduce themselves and ask if there are things we are concerned about. Knowing this, and your commitment to the community, you have my vote. Thanks so much, and keep up the good work. You got this! Mondragon Family.
