We’ll continue planning for the 3rd annual “Las Posadas”

Please join us!
Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance plans for October, November, and
December (2014) will focus on our housing advocacy, culminating with
posada events in December.

the heels of a December 10, 2013, community meeting that brought over
400 people out to demand an immediate opening of unused units to people
in need of housing, on Saturday a coalition of churches, community
organizations, and residents associations will hold a holiday Posada -- a
Latin American traditional re-enactment of the search by the parents of
Jesus for hospitality -- that does double-duty dramatizing the plight
of people left in the cold by Chicago housing policies.
