We Demand Better: A citywide housing forum

May 4 forum will call on the city to create safe, stable housing.

Bring Chicago Home, in partnership with Right to Recovery and BCH steering committee members, will host a virtual citywide housing forum, We Demand Better.

Join us Tuesday, May 4 at 5:30pm to demand that our city does more to create safe, stable housing for all. The event will be hosted on Zoom and streamed live on the Bring Chicago Home Facebook page. Register here.  

The city will receive $1.9 billion in discretionary funds through the American Rescue Plan. Mayor Lightfoot spent over 60% of flexible funding from the CARES Act on policing, and is now proposing that nearly half of the incoming flexible funding is spent on the city’s debt rather than on what residents need. Meanwhile, nearly 77,000 people are experiencing homelessness in Chicago. We are demanding better.

Bring Chicago Home (BCH) is a coalition comprised of people experiencing homelessness and community, policy, and direct-service organizations dedicated to addressing homelessness in Chicago. 

We Demand Better is hosted in partnership with Right to RecoveryChicago Coalition for the Homeless, Communities UnitedJewish Council on Urban Affairs (JCUA)ONE NorthsideThe Rebirth of Greater Roseland, and United Working Families.
