Budget Address 2021

Chicago is sitting on nearly $2 billion in federal COVID relief funds. 

While the Mayor announced she will prioritize re-paying big banks and filling budget holes to support more police, communities can’t afford to wait. We need to ensure city leadership uses this money to rescue our communities, not big banks or the police.

Contact your alderperson and urge them to direct all federal relief dollars to communities hit hardest by decades of disinvestment and the pandemic, and vote for a budget that puts Chicagoans first.
