March 26th Breakfast – Hon. Jason C. Ervin, Alderman 28th Ward on Ward Remap
Population changes, and the resulting proposed number of Black, White, and Hispanic majority wards drawn in contending versions of ward maps proffered by city council caucuses and other groups, beget very contentious debate every 10 years. Adding to this decennial debate is the reasonable inclusion of a majority Asian ward, which, in turn, puts additional pressure on the other major groups.
The debate is required, and the contentiousness is the norm, due to the potential impact this effort has on racial political power, both real and perceived. The remap effort demands a special COAL Breakfast allowing for a deeper dive into the issue, along with the identification of any next steps the community needs to take towards ensuring our interests are protected.
COAL is honored to host the Honorable Jason C. Ervin, Alderman – 28th Ward and Chair of the City Council Black Caucus, for a conversation on the Chicago Ward Remap process and the remap recommended by the Black Caucus.
Please join COAL this Saturday, March 26th for an engaging and informative Breakfast
