A Relocation & Districting Rally,  march and protest, will be held today at 12:00 Noon

Citizens for Moore will stand with the veterans

 

As a result of redistricting of the city wards after the most recent aldermanic elections, the polling place for a South Side community has changed, making it inaccessible to a physically challenged community of veterans. The old polling place was located at the 6th District police station at 7808 S. Halsted St., and has since been moved to Oglesby School, 7641 S. Peoria Street, in the basement.

According to organizers, they discovered that the new location is not accessible for those persons who have to use walkers, crutches or wheelchairs. “And it is clear that those who spearheaded and who are responsible for redistricting the wards did not take in factors cited in Paragraph 1 into account before they put forth redistricting of the city wards to a vote.”

St. Leo campus for veterans asks community residents to come out and voice concerns regarding this matter at a rally today,Wednesday, October 31, 2012, at 12:00 Noon in front of the St. Leo Residence, 7750 S. Emerald Ave.,

Organizers of the rally said they need the assistance and support of all residents of the community, ward veterans and non-veterans alike, who are negatively impacted by this change – directly or indirectly – by this redistricting decision.
