Las Posadas 2016: Action for Public & Affordable Housing in Logan Square

The Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance (LSEA) invites you to join our fourth annual Las Posadas Action for public and affordable housing.

This year we march up Milwaukee Avenue from California to Kedzie, joining Mary, Joseph, and the displaced people in our community in search of a home. Like the Holy Family, poor families in our community – public housing residents in particular – have been turned away time and time again from developments that might have offered them a home. Meanwhile, the 525 public housing units that were lost at Lathrop Homes have still not been replaced.

Finally, in the 35th ward, we may find the promise of “room at the inn” – housing justice and development that prioritizes people over profit. With this action, LSEA celebrates the hope of “room at the inn,” even while we continue to demand full public/affordable housing justice.
