Time is running out to achieve a broad path to citizenship for the millions of undocumented people living in the United States. These individuals have spent years contributing to this country, building lives that protect and provide for their families.

They deserve permanent protection now, and the solution is simple: We need a registry update, so they can apply for permanent residency and finally come out of the shadows.

Learn what an update to the registry could mean for the immigrant community, and call your member of Congress so they can act now.

Pilsen Neighbors Community Council in partnership with the National Catholic Council for Hispanic Ministry shared their support for the downzoning of the former St. Adalbert Parish properties to preserve them for advancement of the community.

We believe the only way to preserve and maintain St. Adalbert’s in the service of the community, and for the future, is for it to be downzoned.

We consider that this zoning best reflects a public land use, which not only honors the faith that built it, but it will also benefit the community, provide services, and continue the connections to the diverse communities that have ties to the former St. Adalbert Parish.

We thank Alderman Byron Sigcho Lopez 25th Ward Office for his leadership, commitment, support, and service to all people.

We look forward to a community process of engagement and discernment with all community stakeholders.

Pilsen Neighbors Community Council organized a two day environmental presentation to Benito Juarez Academy High School students.

Our speakers discussed with the students different topics, such as environmental justice in the community, the CEJA act, solar job opportunities, and green jobs opportunities.

Thank you to PERRO (Pilsen Environmental Rights and Reform Organization) Citizens Utility Board Vote Solar and the Green New Deal for joining us in this presentation.
Today Pilsen Neighbors and the National Catholic Council for Hispanic Ministry hosted a meeting in our offices with Senator Dick Durbin. The topic of the conversation was the Immigration Reform for more than 11 million immigrants and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals renewal.

Pilsen Neighbors community leaders shared their personal testimonies with the Senator about the challenges they have faced as undocumented/DACA students, and how this issue has affected their personal and professional development.

The work does not stop and we will continue working for a Complete and Inclusive Immigration Reform!
