Esto fue parte de la reunión pública llevada a cabo el día de ayer en las instalaciones de la escuela Finkl, donde miembros de la comunidad, junto con padres y madres de los alumnos de la escuela, exigieron a Oficiales Electos y Servidores Públicos un acceso libre, digno y seguro en el viaducto de la calle 23 entre la Western y Rockwell.

Pilsen Neighbors Community Council seguirá trabajando y organizando junto con los padres de la escuela Finkl, hasta conseguir un viaducto seguro para los alumnos de la escuela y toda la comunidad.

Today and during the whole month of March, we continue highlighting the women who have contributed in different areas to the development of our Pilsen community.

Diana Perez: She is the program coordinator for the Unaccompanied Migrant Youth Project at SGA Youth & Family Services, recently graduated with a Master’s Degree in Communication and Media from Northeastern Illinois University.

She has been working closely with Pilsen Neighbor Community Council to ensure that our community continues to be informed during this pandemic about important issues and resources available to them.

In addition, during the 2020 Census campaign SGA, PNCC, and Pilsen Wellness Center partnered to reach out to the community by creating a Facebook live segment called "Chismeando Sobre el Censo", where every Friday they would discuss the importance of getting our community counted. This effort led us to do Census car caravans, food distributions, and encourage our community to get out to vote early in the 2020 elections in the 25th Ward.

This year, she became the Chair of Fiesta del Sol Citizenship and Immigration Expo, where her goal is to address issues of different immigrant communities in the Chicagoland, with the purpose of educating and empowering the diverse communities on the similarities and differences of these issues that can bring us together to fight for justice and for a comprehensive immigration reform.

Along with this, Fiesta del Sol Citizenship and Immigration Expo brings together diverse community organizations, community leaders, volunteer immigration attorneys, and local government entities to provide immigration services and counseling.
