Four families have just lost their homes today in a large fire in Pilsen that damaged two buildings, collapsing one of them at 2036 w 21st place. The daughter of the landlord is raising funds for these families and every penny will go directly to them. If you could, we would encourage you to help out these families in need who have just lost their homes. We have provided the link below that will take you to the Gofundme page. We thank you for your solidarity! If you have any questions please contact Anna Lopez on her facebook page.
DONATE TO HELP THESE FAMILIES

The initial meeting was organized by UIC students and spread via Facebook the week before titled “STOP DONALD TRUMP 2016”.
