Last Saturday at the #Bronzeville #CommUNITY Celebration, we had a great time with the people and resident seniors of Bronzeville!🎉

Our booth included winning prizes, playing bingo, historical headsman *the Bronzeville edition* and registering folks to vote! We passed out gift cards to the bingo winners. In the true spirit of commUNITY, we were pleased to see that an anonymous donor gave us a $100 gift card to become the grand prize. The winning question was, "What nonprofit organization was founded in 1994 by President Barack Obama?"

........the answer is Lugenia Burns Hope Center!

Thank you to Ellis Park Advisory Council and Organic Oneness for hosting. Stay tuned for more chances to meet with us, possibly win prizes and attend future community events 🗣

MTO/CUL co-hosted event:
Roderick Wilson, of the Lugenia Burns Hope Center, a grassroots nonprofit that works with CHA residents, isn’t happy with the new numbers. He said public housing residents were told their buildings would be demolished and replaced with one-third market rate units, one-third affordable housing units, and one-third public housing units. “That’s what they sold us,” he said. “ And they haven’t done that. Now they’re trying to renege [and] renegotiate that third of public housing and I don’t think that’s right.”,FROM:https://www.wbez.org/shows/wbez-news/cha-to-add-more-mixedincome-housing-in-bronzeville/4d155fb8-d856-4271-ac71-16282fb8d577 "
