48th Ward Update- May 28, 2021

Weekly Update from Your AldermanView this email in your browserMay 28, 2021 
Dear Neighbor,

This weekend’s weather forecast might suggest otherwise, but with Memorial Day upon us, it’s the official start to summer. We are looking forward to a safe and fun season in our community and across the city, with block parties returning in July. If you are eligible and haven’t received your vaccine yet, I strongly encourage you to take this important step to protect yourself and your neighbors. My office can help you find an appointment if you’re having trouble. Check out our vaccine resources on our website or zocdoc.com/vaccine.

Chicago’s beaches open today, something that many neighbors, my team included, really missed last summer. Click here to read the Mayor’s announcement about beaches opening. Additionally, the Chicago Park District is hosting a series of community water safety courses at Foster, Hollywood, and other beaches in the city. Click here for the schedule. This is a great opportunity for Chicagoans of all ages to get refreshed on beach safety.

This week Mayor Lightfoot introduced an ordinance that rests final power in her hands when it comes to oversight of the Chicago Police Department. This is not what Chicagoans want, as community groups and leaders from across the city have been working for years to create a civilian oversight board for the Chicago Police Department. My colleagues and I, along with the GAPA and CPAC coalitions, are working to get the Empowering Communities for Public Safety (ECPS) ordinance passed. I was a leading sponsor on the GAPA ordinance, and am a leading sponsor on the ECPS ordinance. I will keep you posted on our progress as this ordinance moves forward. Click here to view the ECPS ordinance.

As we end Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, my office is supporting tomorrow’s Argyle Activation Walk, coordinated by Haibayo and Qideas. This is a day to come out and show support for the Asia on Argyle business district, and to celebrate the our neighbors, community leaders, and business owners from the AAPI community who make the Argyle area an immersive cultural hub. Tomorrow will feature pop-up activations along Argyle St and in Argyle businesses, including cultural performances, DJ sets, vendors, and even some classic cars lined up at Rocket Tattoo. Click here for full details, and plan to stop by sometime between noon and 9pm.

This week Nat Wilburn retired after 17 years as Head of Schools for Sacred Heart Schools. I want to thank Nat for all his work to ensure students at Sacred heart have received a great education. Under Nat’s leadership, Sacred Heart has done a lot to support the greater Edgewater community, including being an active participant in the Edgewater 5K and opening the school’s doors to youth from other schools with the Edgewater Youth United program. Please join me in wishing Nat the best on his next chapter.

If you’re looking for something different to do tonight, Senn Arts students invite the community out to the Senn Lawn, 5900 N. Glenwood, at 5:30pm for their Word on the Street event. Bring a blanket or chair and fully charged phone and headphones for the full experience! Click here for details.

The 48th Ward office will be closed on Monday, May 31, in observation of Memorial Day. Let’s all find some time this weekend to reflect on those we have lost while serving in the United States military. Garbage and recycling pick-up schedules may be impacted by the holiday, as crews will not be out on Monday. Please make sure your bins are accessible all week.

Have a peaceful weekend.

The Third Coast: When Chicago Built the American Dream By Thomas Dyja
Meeting: Saturday, June 12, 10 a.m. Via Zoom
Click here to register

In addition to being one of the Great Migration cities, Chicago was also known as a center for transportation, architecture, financial markets, and innovation. Celebrated for its unique literary character, but also reviled for failing to protect its vulnerable citizens, and a tendency towards corruption, the city has always been a mix of high and low.

Join us for a discussion on the city’s influence on U.S. history by reading Thomas Dyja’s The Third Coast: When Chicago Built the American Dream. This title will be available at the Circulation Desk or can be sent to other branches for pick-up.

This program is a partnership with the Chicago Public Library.2021 Pivot Arts Festival: Reclaiming Utopia
Safely returns to live events
May 21–June 6 Combines

World Premieres of Theatre, Dance, Video, Music, Puppetry
Pivot Arts, a hub for adventurous, multidisciplinary performance, announces “Reimagining Utopia,” the ninth annual Pivot Arts Festival featuring almost entirely world premieres, May 21–June 6, 2021 at several indoor and outdoor performance spaces. Following the all-virtual 2020 Festival, Pivot Arts this year plans to bring together audiences and artists safely and in observance of public health protocols. Tickets are on sale April 30 at pivotarts.org/festival.
Pivot Arts selected 12 artists and companies to create small, live works of theatre, dance and/or music, as well as video installations, inspired by this year’s theme, “Reimagining Utopia.” Pivot asked the artists to think about a better world post-pandemic and respond to the global health crisis and the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020. Audience members will also have the opportunity to respond with their visions of a brighter future and more just and equitable society.
To observe safety precautions due to the pandemic, most in-person festival works are video installations, and live performers and audience members must wear masks. Audiences engage in events by proceeding through a space featuring video and small live works, similar to a walking tour through a gallery, rather than sitting and watching longer performances. There are also outdoor events and videos on the Pivot Arts website.Northside Catholic Academy (NCA) Upcoming EventsNCA’s 1st Annual Golfing for Greater Tournament
