Logan Square Good News - August, 2014: Housing, Climate, and New Participants!

The Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance held its monthly meeting today -- August 5, 2014.

(1)  We were pleased to welcome the Rev. Paula Cripps-Vallejo from Humboldt Park United Methodist, who was accompanied by HPUM member and colleague Delia Ramirez.  To learn about Rev. Cripps-Vallejo, see the recent profile on the LSEA website.

(2) The Rev. Dr. Terry Gallagher of the Climate Reality Project is available to come give a slide presentation at area congregations. The Climate Reality Project is an effort to raise awareness about the risks climate change poses to our planet and our communities. The project is based around presentations that are given by volunteers which offer clear, non-partisan information about the ways that climate change will impact us as human beings. From extreme weather to rising sea levels, the dangers posed by climate change are substantial and are already being felt on every continent. However, these presentations also focus on the opportunities we have to protect one another, as well as future generations, by acting quickly to address the causes of climate change. As parents, grandparents, neighbors, community members and parishioners we have a responsibility to care for one another and that involves preserving the delicate natural balances our society depends on.  These presentations can be adjusted to any audience or length of time. (Contact Terry at .)

(3) "LOGAN SQUARE FOR ALL" Housing Justice action: An action related to development of the Milshire SRO is scheduled for Thursday, August 21 at 6:00 p.m. See separate listing for full event details.

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 9, at 1:00 p.m. at ALSO (2401 W. North).
