Op-ed: Anti-Black and Anti-Immigrant Racism Reinforce One Another. Solidarity Is the Only Way We Win – South Side Weekly

Our friend and STOP member Benji Hart wrote a fantastic opinion piece on the Mayor’s decision to house migrants in Woodlawn’s Wadsworth Elementary School. Read about it below.

"What would it look like if we recognized the parallels across our shared battles, and offered compassion and support to our displaced comrades instead of hostility?"

Lightfoot’s decision to house migrants in shuttered Woodlawn school without community input should unite us in demanding real investments—not keep us apart

The City is holding another meeting on their effort to shelter migrants in Woodlawn. It's this Saturday, 1/28, 2:30pm at Hyde Park Academy High School (you can register at chi.gov/WadsworthMeeting) or virtually via chi.gov/WadsworthZoom.

Let's speak up in solidarity with both long-time Woodlawn residents and the potential new residents - migrants! You can read our full perspective on this at stopchicago.org/news/wadsworth

Push to Reopen Public Mental Health Clinics Closed 11 Years Ago Defines Another Chicago Mayor’s Race

The city government continues to push a false narrative that residents don’t want mental-health clinics reopened. But a referendum to reopen those clinics and to send police-free mental-health emergency response with 93% of the vote! This is a harsh reminder that some elected officials will use the Southside to win votes and then discard us as soon as it's politically convenient.

A majority of candidates hoping to oust Mayor Lori Lightfoot from City Hall’s fifth floor office have pledged to reopen public mental health clinics. Lightfoot said her network of nonprofit Trauma-Informed Centers of Care provide better and more accessible service.

You may have heard that we lost member Evie Woodson late last year. Read a beautiful reflection by her friend Duff Morton: STOPchicago.org/news/evie

"Evelyn was an activist and she identified as one. She fought for her own freedom by successfully getting herself out of nursing homes – over and over again, for more than ten years. Evelyn didn’t disrespect the doctors and nurses who were worried about her many medical conditions. She also didn’t run away. Instead, she advocated thoughtfully and forcefully for herself, believing in her independence, striving to live as free as she could."

We want to kick off 2023 and follow up on our year-end fundraising message by expressing our gratitude! Last year, so many people made STOP possible: our members, staff, board, partners, allies, heck, even our targets! We get to celebrate so many of you at events like our gala, holiday party, summer barbecue, and hope to see you all back at those this year!

Since we just asked you to give not only your time but your money, we want to dedicate a message to saying thank you to everyone who made STOP possible through their donations last year.

So THANK YOU to the 234 people who made a total of 972 donations to us in 2022. Thanks especially to the 85 of you who donated to us monthly! Because we could count on you every month, we could plan the sustained work we needed to build up to big victories.

We also want to especially thank everyone who gave when it wasn’t so easy to give. Of course big gifts help too, but we are strongest when we all pitch in what we have. Your contributions because you believed – even if you did not have plenty to give – mean the world to us.

Finally, we are deeply appreciative of the groups who gave to us this year. Your backing year after year is fundamental to our movement. Thanks to:

Statement on conversion of Wadsworth into asylum-seekers’ shelter — Southside Together Organizing for Power

PLEASE READ OUR FULL STATEMENT AT THE LINK, AND SHARE. Here are excerpts:

Recent weeks have been full of confusion for Woodlawn neighbors as Mayor Lightfoot announced, with little notice and no community input, that Wadsworth Elementary—a school closed under Rahm Emanuel—would be converted into a refuge for asylum seekers.

STOP supports asylum seekers, and all those in need of shelter to our neighborhood.

We are concerned about the safety and long term liveability of our neighborhood, but we know the problem is not new residents arriving.

As the Mayor invests $1.5 million into the rehab of Wadsworth Elementary, we demand that this investment be the start of turning the space into a community resource that can be used after the asylum seekers leave.

Statement by STOP, approved by our board: Recent weeks have been full of confusion for Woodlawn neighbors as Mayor Lightfoot announced, with little notice and no community input, that Wadsworth Elementary—a school closed under Rahm Emanuel—would be converted into a refuge for asylum seekers.

As we look back on this year, we want to recognize the passing of Mattie Butler, who was so important to STOP and Woodlawn.

She supported the residents and students who founded STOP, she served on STOP’s board, and she fought alongside STOP and so many others for the housing that our Black, working-class neighbors need.

Earlier this month, we gathered over 40 high-school students and many adults at Woodlawn's public Hyde Park Academy High School for a Peace Summit.

We processed two traumas from school year already: the murder of student Kanye Perkins, who had been enrolled at Hyde Park Academy before transferring to a neighboring school; and the shooting of a current Hyde Park Academy student. We also heard from inspiring speakers on restorative justice -- "justice that heals." And we connected with resources like programs for youth.

We must end cycles of harm in our community, and we must end the school-to-prison pipeline!

We're grateful for our restorative-justice coordinator, Anna Durr, for imagining and organizing this profound event.

We're sad to share that long-time member Evelyn Woodson died on November 30. She fought for justice widely, for instance with not only us but Access Living.

She'd been sick for months, and almost made it to age 65. Her funeral will be this Sunday -- her birthday -- at 2pm at St. Thomas Lutheran Church.

Our tenant leaders in buildings run by the East Lake company, like seniors Ms Celestine and Ms Hightower, told the press that they and their fellow tenants must not still be shut out of their housing complexes' community rooms! We and the EastLake Tenants Union demand: tenants must be allowed to gather (and to organize!).

See us on the news! abc7chicago.com/east-lake-management-chicago-covid-senior-living-apartments/12541500

When we announced this press conference, East Lake announced in only one of their many buildings that they would finally re-open community rooms, only during business hours. So we know that our actions are having an effect, and we know that East Lake is still being as stingy and oppressive as it can get away with.

East Lake Tenants are standing up demanding their community room be reopened and tenants' rights to organize be respected.

Residents of East Lake Management senior living buildings protested to demand the company re-open the community rooms in their buildings.

There is so much to celebrate and support about STOP. Think about it... Low-income, Black residents of Woodlawn are leading the fight against the racism and dis-investment that devastates communities in America's third-largest city.

We've made our mayor prioritize affordable housing near the Obama Center, we've pioneered restorative justice in schools, and more.

Thanks to our FLDA friends for this victory!

A People’s Victory! Activists and lawyers have forced the Chicago police to end a decades-old practice of denying people their right to a phone call and attorneys while in police custody. These rights are now guaranteed to all Chicago detainees.

The case arose out of widespread legal violations during the 2020 uprising following the murder of George Floyd.

Clients include Black Lives Matter Chicago Cook County Public Defender's Office GoodKids MadCity the CollectiveNational Lawyers Guild of Chicago Southside Together Organizing for Power - STOPUMedics and we worked with lawyers at The Roderick & Solange MacArthur Justice Center and the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic at the University of Chicago Law School on this case.

CPD is installing phones and private rooms in every police station for attorney consultations by phone and must also comply with IL law requiring that people in custody be able to communicate with family and lawyers in a timely manner and no longer than 3 hours after being placed in custody.

These are massive changes to the rights arrestees have on arrest.

As part of the , Chicago United for Equity engaged thousands of Chicagoans on what communities need to be safe and thriving and residents overwhelmingly chose health as a priority.

Since 2013, over half of the city's mental health clinics have closed, leaving many without care.

Southside Together Organizing for Power - STOP Board member, Diane Adams, is a testament to the impact of public mental health clinics in Chicago.

Chicago needs public health infrastructure that views community members as humans and supports them along their mental health journey.

We are calling for a $10 million investment in mental health care - and we need your help. Call your alder and demand they cosponsor the mental health amendment TODAY.

Script: "My name is __________ and I am a constituent/ community member/ resident of your ward. I am calling to ask for your support of the mental health budget amendment that funds necessary and vital mental health care by reestablishing 7 public clinics and expands capacity at 5 to serve as a triage to crisis response. We need a city that invests in healing now."
