City-backed venture plans 250 homes in North Lawndale
Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the program, using public and private money, will address decades of neglect and help families build wealth.

By David Roeder and Fran Spielman Updated Jun 28, 2021, 2:07pm CDT

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and community groups pledged Monday to build 250 homes in North Lawndale to improve the community and help families build wealth.

The program, part of the Invest South/West effort, involves selling city-owned parcels for $1 each to groups that say they have stitched together $27.55 million in private and public funds to support the construction. The city said it would provide $5.3 million from two West Side tax increment financing districts for site cleanup and preparation, all to help keep the homes affordable.

For Lightfoot, who has declared racism a public health crisis in Chicago, it represents a financial pledge for an area victimized through the years by redlining, predatory loans and a loss of businesses. She said the homes in the Reclaiming Communities Campaign will be built over three to five years.

At a news conference announcing the program, Lightfoot noted that in North Lawndale, 18% of the land is vacant. The city owns roughly 950 vacant parcels. “That is a wow. That is a wow. But through this campaign we will turn this vacant land into opportunity,” the mayor said.

The city will work with United Power for Action and Justice, a coalition of organizations. Also involved are Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives and Lawndale Christian Development Corp.

The groups cited $10 million in the new state budget to provide average subsidies of $30,000 to each homebuyer. They also reported a $12.25 million revolving construction fund provided by JP Morgan Chase and several foundations.

With the subsidy, the goal is to offer the homes at $220,000, said Shangwé Parker, a leader at United Power.

The organizations have a long-term goal of building 1,000 homes on the West and South sides. They believe owner-occupancy will stabilize the areas and reduce violence.

During the event at Penn Elementary School, 1616 S. Avers Ave., Lightfoot said home ownership has “long been a significant predictor of future financial stability.” It gives people the “freedom and space they need” to raise a family, pass on generational wealth and “climb a ladder of upward mobility,” she said.

But for too many Black and Brown Chicagoans, the American dream is “just beyond our reach,” the mayor said. She argued that the “elusive nature of home ownership” is nothing less than a “modern-day manifestation of decades of discriminatory practices.”

Lightfoot pointed to a recent study by WBEZ Radio and City Bureau that showed banks lend 12 cents in Black neighborhoods and 13 cents in Hispanic neighborhoods for every $1 they lend in white neighborhoods.

Among those supporting the program was U.S. Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, D-Illinois. Garcia argued that Chicagoans have faced a “tough choice” for far too long when it comes to finding housing they can afford: Unsafe housing in “under invested” neighborhoods or “development and displacement.”

A protester speaks from the street outside as Ald. Michael Scott Jr. (24th) discusses the launch of the Reclaiming Communities Campaign during a news conference in North Lawndale on the Southwest Side, Monday, June 28, 2021.

Protesters interrupted the news conference Monday. They used a megaphone in an attempt to drown out the parade of elected officials at the podium and claim that the homes would be built by outsiders and occupied by people who don’t live in North Lawndale.

“If you don’t have a hater, you’re not doing nothing,” said Richard Townsell, executive director of the Lawndale group. “Don’t believe any of that nonsense that this is being built for somebody else.”

Local Ald. Michael Scott Jr. (24th) added, “We are all here together: Black, Brown, white. We all are invested in this community. And I urge each and every one of you to stay committed. Don’t let that fodder and that nonsense deter what it is that we’re doing. Because we’re doing a good thing.”

Housing Commissioner Marisa Novara simply ignored the protesters and talked over them about how home ownership has “long been denied to Black people in this country, in this city and, specifically, this neighborhood” of North Lawndale.

“Race-neutral policies do not lead to race-neutral results. We will have to be intentional to actively repair the intergenerational harm of private and government wealth extraction from Black Chicagoans,” Novara said. “That’s why we’re here today. Two hundred-fifty homes in North Lawndale will not only create new homeowners who will have the opportunity to build wealth. These new homes will also help to develop the entire community.”

Illinois Senate President Don Harmon said the $10 million in state funding for the program was the product of virtually nonstop lobbying by United Power. “They came to my office and came to my office and came to my office,” Harmon said with a smile. “I look forward to seeing you in my office in a week.”

About Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin

Born on Chicago’s South Side and raised on the West Side’s Austin neighborhood, Melissa is the youngest of three daughters raised by her single mother, Eula, who often worked overtime, twelve-hour days, at a union glass manufacturing factory to make ends meet. Eula touted the importance of education for Melissa, and as a product of Chicago Public Schools, Melissa became the first person in her family to attend college. During her freshman year of college at Eastern Illinois University, Melissa faced one of the biggest challenges of her life: After twenty years at her union job, Eula’s plant closed, leaving her mother without a job. Although Melissa offered to leave college to help pay the bills, Eula insisted she pursue a quality education and let nothing get in the way. Melissa’s mother eventually found a job, but it required exhausting double shifts to make ends meet. But setting an example, Eula later earned an undergraduate degree of her own. Melissa graduated college, moved back home to the West Side and was quickly recruited to a position at Allstate Insurance. She rose through managerial ranks, overseeing regional offices and earning a M.B.A. in Finance from Roosevelt University. Interested in finding a way to give back to her community, Melissa sought an Executive in Residency, where Allstate paid for her to work at a charity based organization in Garfield Park, Breakthrough Urban Ministries. While at Breakthrough, Melissa was impacted not only by homeless clients turning their lives around, but also the joyfulness volunteers and staff exhibited while they worked to improve their world. “I was able to see firsthand the effects on poverty in my community. I knew then that I had to have a more direct effect on what was going on around me,” said Melissa. Soon after, in 2016, Melissa ran for and won a seat to become a state representative. As a legislator, Melissa earned a reputation as someone who reaches across the aisle to get things done for working families. As a state representative, she sponsored the improved Illinois education funding formula that directed over $221 million in additional funding to Chicago Public Schools. She was also the chief sponsor of bipartisan legislation that protected funding for child care assistance, a service that allows many working parents to stay in the workforce. Now, as a candidate for Treasurer, Melissa plans to focus her private-sector and financial training on ways to bring development into Chicago’s neighborhoods. Chicago’s billions of dollars of municipal deposits should be leveraged to help Chicago communities grow at the same rate, regardless of their zip code. Melissa believes Chicago’s investments should observe a triple bottom line, ensuring city money isn’t used to harm the environment or working families. Melissa and her husband live in Garfield Park with their young daughter, Jeneva. Melissa is the youth superintendent at Mt. Vernon Church and participates in a youth mentoring program for teenage girls. She also founded a woman’s book club that draws members from Roscoe Village to Lawndale.

Reject Massachusetts Assisted Su***de Bill S.1208/H.1926 (S.2745) PETITION TO: MS. KAREN SPILKA - PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE The Massachusetts state legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Health voted to approve assisted su***de bill S.1208/H.1926 (note: the bill was amended and is now S.2745). https://citizengo.org/en/180087-reject-massachusetts-assisted-su***de-bill-s1208h1926 Petition to: Ms. Karen Spilka - President of the Senate I oppose assisted su***de bill S.1208/H.1926 (S.2745). Assisted su***de allows a physician to intentionally cause the death of another person. The safeguards in the law are designed to protect the doctor, not the patient. Doctors are human and can make mistakes. I also reject the timing of this debate because many of the people who are most affected by this legislation have been unable to participate in the debate based on the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, especially considering the fact that an election is coming this November. Reject assisted su***de bill S.1208/H.1926 (S.2745). The debate should be about how we can improve the care of our citizens, not how to kill them. [Your Name]
