Canoe and Clean

Get out and enjoy the Chicago River with us, and do some good. Friends of the Chicago River’s Litter Free Chicago River project is offering a fun way for the public to get involved by paddling with us in our new program, Canoe and Cleanups. We provide the canoes, the equipment, and the know-how. You provide the can-do spirit. Only $10!

The Chicago River is cleaner than it has been in generations, but there is still an inordinate amount of garbage in the river. Litter is devastating to wildlife and a deterrent to people—and as development along the river continues it will only increase.

Offered only monthly, no experience is necessary, all equipment is provided. Friends’ trusty canoe guides will be there to help participants safely load in and out of the boats, offer paddling tips and answer questions about the river along the way. We recommend paddlers be eight years old and above, younger river lovers are welcome to sit in the center of the canoes and enjoy the experience with their families. Participants will need to sign a paddling waiver upon arrival. Space is limited so registration is required.

2nd Annual Closed Loop Forum

The second annual Closed Loop Forum, hosted by Plant Chicago, brings together people from all backgrounds and perspectives for discussion around the circular economy - what it is and different ways communities and businesses are implementing and benefiting from it. Two panels about 1) current status and trends of the larger reuse economy, and 2) large and small businesses putting circularity into practice, will be followed by break out sessions to workshop and implement ideas. The event will conclude with a poster and networking session in the Whiner Beer taproom.

Plant Chicago is developing a Small Business Circular Economy Toolkit with guides and best practices to put local circular economy principles into action. These principles are: Renewable Energy, Resource Sharing, Recapturing materials, Community Benefits, Locally sourced materials, Shared business success, Local waste recovery and Equitable benefits for all. Attendees of the Closed Loop Forum will explore how these principles are or are not being implemented at the local and global scale, and how we can each take action to cultivate local circular economies.

Public Newsroom 118: How Should We Cover Sexual Assault?

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, newsrooms across the country are more and more willing to support robust reporting on sexual assault. But an earnest interest in covering these topics doesn’t always produce the best reporting for survivors and their communities. How can journalists report on sexual assault ethically, with the most care for sources who are survivors of sexual violence? What would it look like to report on sexual violence in a way that is generative instead of extractive? What types of reporting on this topic are most useful to survivors and their networks of support?

The evening will feature a Q&A with Jim DeRogatis, an Associate Professor at Columbia College and co-host of Sound Opinions, who has been reporting on allegations of sexual abuse by R. Kelly since the early 2000s. He and other guests to be announced will be sharing concrete tips for other journalists who want to do this reporting ethically. The Q&A will be followed by a series of small group discussions where attendees will help unpack the current state of reporting on sexual violence, what’s missing and what they’d like to see change.

Public Newsroom 117: Chicago's Eviction Crisis

  • South Shore United Methodist Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In May 2019 Chicago Reader published a two-year-long investigation into Pangea Real Estate by staff writer Maya Dukmasova that found the company had filed roughly 9,000 eviction cases since 2009. What’s more Dukmasova’s reporting revealed that little is known about Chicago’s larger eviction court system and the 20,000 cases filed there annually. “It's difficult to overstate the degree of historical disinterest in the eviction of renters in Chicago . . . rental housing in poor neighborhoods went largely unexamined—particularly the financial and social dynamics between landlords and tenants.” Dukmasova wrote in the piece.

This week at the #PublicNewsroom Dukmasova will share a breakdown of her investigation into Pangea as well as an historic overview of eviction court and tenants’ rights. The evening will also feature a panel of experts including Mark Swartz from the Lawyers' Committee for Better Housing and Steve McKenzie, a long-time attorney for the city who litigates against landlords for building code violations. (Other panelists will be announced in the coming weeks.) Attendees will also participate in a series of activities and small group discussions around renters rights and learn to research building history and ownership using public databases.

Refreshments will be provided.

Public Newsroom 116: Understanding "Menu Money" in Your Ward

Every year the city’s 50 alderpeople get about $1.32 million known as “menu money” to spend on infrastructure needs in their ward. These funds are often used to improve streets, lighting, parks, libraries, transit or other neighborhood needs.

So how do alderpeople decide what to spend their $1.32 million on each year? Or how does spending compare between wards? Or even between neighborhoods within the same ward?

We’ll be exploring these questions during our final alderperson accountability workshop at Harold Washington Library (on the 8th floor). With help from our Documenters team and Chicago United for Equity we’ll walk through data from 2012 year to 2018 year. You can check out the 2014-2018 spending via thisOffice of Budget and Management report here: https://www.chicago.gov/content/dam/city/depts/obm/supp_info/CIP_Archive/2014CapitalBook.pdf.

We’ll also talk through how some wards in Chicago use participatory budgeting, “a democratic process by which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget.” (http://www.pbchicago.org/about.html)
