AND

OUR ALLIES

 

Monday June 19th, 2006

True Emancipation Day Rally

at

The Thompson Center

 

“IF YOU DON’T STAND UP FOR SOMETHING, YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING!”

 

We are asking the entire African American community and our allies to join us in our True Emancipation Day Rally at Thompson Center. We will began at Malcolm X College 1900 W. VanBuren, Chicago under the Red, Black and Green  flag of our people. We will  march to the Thompson Center to address the following issues.

 

1. Stop the measures that would impact nearly 200 schools, and those include closing some doors.

 

The closing schools would affect 1,065 of the district's 426,000 students. The elementary schools recommended for closure are Frazier, Morse and Farren to name a few. The phasing out students from Collins High School and 181 Chicago schools are also slated for restructuring, including Sherman Elementary and Carver Military Academy.

 

2. Amendment XV - Race no bar to vote..

 

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.African Americans are the only group of people who require PERMISSION under the United States Constitution to vote! In the year 2007. Our right to vote should no longer be up for discussion, review and/or evaluation.

3.  Illinois Legislative Treatment on Demand Legislation

The Drug Problem is devastating both urban and suburban communities. A recent survey done by the Illinois Alcoholism and Drug Dependence Association estimates that 8,000 to 10,000 people are on a waiting list any given day in Illinois. 1.2 million people, said they would support state funding for any individual seeking treatment from a licensed provider, hospital, or community provider.  In other words, voters would support Substance Abuse Treatment on Demand.

 

4. Community Safety through Recidivism Prevention or the Second Chance Act

This legislation allocates federal dollars towards a variety of re-entry programs for ex-offenders. (1) provide structured post-release housing and transitional housing; (2) facilitate specified collaboration to promote the employment of people released from prison and jail; (3) carry out programs that support children of incarcerated parents; and (4) Expungement of Criminal Records.
