Don’t forget to come out to our panel discussion on community benefits agreements. The discussion will take place on November 9, 2016, from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm. at the Lawndale Community Church, 3827 West Ogden Avenue.
Panelists will provide a very brief overview of their experiences and we will open the floor for a lively question, answer and comment period from our audience.
You will learn what a community benefits agreement is, the pros and cons; when they may be appropriate, and hear from people who are actively working on them in the city of Chicago. Our panelists will include attorneys and activists who will share challenges working on such projects as the Whole Foods store in Englewood, the USX development in South Shore, the Obama Presidential Library in Jackson Park, and the Illinois Medical District. We will also hear an alternative view from UCAN in North Lawndale.
