Back in April 2020, the Chicago Sun Times profiled Mariah Bingham (above), who is just one of 17,000 houseless CPS students. Stories like these are why the CTU’s Housing Committee exists.

You’re invited to a February 16 meeting and film screening in the North Lawndale / Herzl community to discuss the problem of houselessness among CPS families. The goal of the event is to discuss ways to help our students and their families secure stable housing.

“The Color Tax: Origins of the Modern-Day Racial Wealth Gap” is the third episode of a five-episode documentary series exploring the racial wealth gap in Chicago. This episode looks at how the real-estate industry and the federal government designed housing policies that led to the rapid expansion of the white middle class and the erosion of Black homeownership.

Refreshments will be served. We look forward to seeing you on February 16!
