Take our survey on food access and transportation - Active Transportation Alliance

How does public transit help or hurt your access to fresh groceries? Do you have to travel to other neighborhoods just to get fresh food?

Active Transportation Alliance is working with local food pantries to explore food access in relation to public transportation. To better inform this work — and better inform the people who have the power to change policy — we also want to hear from you. Take the survey below and you could win a $25 Amazon gift card!

It's here! Election day! Get out and vote if you haven't already, and if you've voted early, have trust in knowing your vote WILL be counted.

Tonight, we will likely not know the results of this election. We may not know the results for some time, and that’s okay. Counting every vote will take time, and the most important thing we can do now is trust the democratic process. And remember- over the past 250 years through pandemics, depressions, and world wars, Americans have always found a way to hold fair elections and make their voices heard.

Foreclosure 'Rescue' Scams — Northwest Side Housing Center

Last week, we heard from three homeowners who received letters from a supposed law group claiming their home had a definitive foreclosure date, and that in order to save their home they could pay this firm. A separate homeowner we spoke with actually lost $3,000 paying a firm doing something similar.
