Statement, on behalf of the CABC, in support of State's Attorney Kim Foxx:

“We are not fooled by Bill Conway’s recent ad. He is an opportunistic candidate who took on the Candace Clark case simply for personal gain. Instead of exploiting people of color, Conway should focus on his plans to deliver equitable justice. That is if he has any. It's unclear up to this point since he's spent all of his father's money on Jussie Smollett ads. In doing so, Conway has revealed that he lacks the forethought to lead this office.”

We need to hit pause on Chicago marijuana sales

CHICAGO, IL — On Tuesday, December 17, 2019 the Committee on Contracting Oversight and Equity passed the ordinance to prohibit the sale of Adult-Use recreational cannabis on January 1st 2020. The Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus (CABC) stands behind this ordinance and offers the following statement: “What we have seen here today is one step in the right direction. We are going to continue to work together and push for equity. In addition, we are looking forward to continue having ongoing discussions with the State and City. We thank our communities for providing us their support and being partners with us throughout these conversations.”

Equity and justice depend on it, members of the aldermanic Black Caucus write. Act now, or there will be zero African American, Latinx or female owners licensed to run cannabis shops.

Chicago pot sales would be delayed until July under proposal pushed by black aldermen

With this current plan, there will undoubtedly be economic loss and opportunities for African Americans. There is currently zero African American participation among the 11 existing dispensaries-- who will get the first shot at the market during the first year of legalization. Today, as a caucus, we will be introduce an ordinance to hold sales until July 1st 2020 and use this time to find more equitable solutions.”

Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus Chairman Jason C Ervin

"This is only the first step in many steps to come to ensure African American participation in this growing industry. Now we must focus on the zoning board of appeals criteria, rules for participation in the lottery, and licensing criteria. We are ready to work with our Springfield counterparts to make certain we secure genuine ownership."

- Chairman Pat Dowell

"This industry could result in 4-600mil of sales in the first year and 0 black and brown ownership in the city.”

- Alderman Sophia D. King

The chairman of the Black Caucus says they will introduce an ordinance Wednesday that would halt the planned sale of legal marijuana for six months next year.

The Spin: Lightfoot vs. Burke on full display at first City Council meeting

“African-American leadership: The City Council Black Caucus elected West Side Ald. Jason Ervin, 28th, as its chairman Wednesday. Ervin, who succeeds South Side Ald. Roderick Sawyer, was elected to the City Council in 2011. His wife, Melissa Conyears-Ervin, was just elected city treasurer.

Ervin takes over as the 20-member caucus gears up to try to hold on to as many seats as possible in the remap after the 2020 U.S. Census, in spite of the fact Chicago’s African-American population has plummeted in recent years.” - Chicago Tribune

“We send our love to Jussie Smollett and his family at this time. We understand that there are more details to come, however, at this time we stand together against any form of racism and homophobia and we are tired of this senseless violence. This is a disgusting hate crime that cannot be tolerated. Jussie was targeted because he was black and gay and this shows that in 2019 we are still awaiting justice and fighting bigotry.” - Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus Chairman Roderick Sawyer

“Time and time again our community suffers from injustice. Systemic racism is alive and well in Chicago and this verdict is an example of the senseless violence that our community experiences everyday. Our young men are dying at the hands of police. We need leadership and accountability." - Alderman Roderick T. Sawyer

If they have laws and fines that try to deter motorist from hitting IDOT workers, we can make laws that try to deter police officers from killing citizens they're supposed to protect. The body and dashboard cameras should always be on when performing police work (traffic stops, arrests, pursuits, etc...etc..... If they are off during police work,1 month suspension and immediate termination if there is a death. If you can keep a cellphone charged, you can keep those cameras charged. Party buses are even required to have WORKING CAMERAS. If the police shoots an unarmed person running away from them, automatic termination and face charges like a civilian, and if a suspect says he can't breath and there are several officers around, relax pressure so he can breath. If he becomes unconscious, 1 month suspension. If he dies, automatic termination.
Who is Sarah Gad? How is she positioning herself to become a United States congressional representative for Black people in Chicago without a word from you?
When and Where is your next CABC meeting?
Alderman Ervin, I was disappointed that not one black-owned company was awarded a franchise to sell recreational marijuana in Chicago. This was a big business opportunity for black-owned firms. And it may not come again for decades. I also was disappointed in the lack of action by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. I believe she could have done more to help black companies instead of ceding everything to the J.B. Pritzker, the smug Illinois governor. I consider Mayor Lightfoot "mayor photo opportunity." She shows up for photo opportunities in the black community and does little else. Frederick H. Lowe Editor and Founder BlackmansStreet.Today
Thank you to the 13 CABC members plus 6 more aldermen who voted yesterday to delay cannabis sales.
