My name is Paul Donnely and I have lived in Logan Square for two and half years. And I’ve seen dozens of my neighbors have to pick up and leave because of gentrification. I’m worried that I might be next. The affordable housing in my neighborhood is not actually affordable and it won’t help the people I know who have been displaced. I am with an organization called We Are/ Somos Logan Square working with tenants to make sure they know their rights and have support they need to stay in the neighborhood. We are asking the developers and the alderman Joe Moreno to ensure the development projects along Milwaukee avenue include real affordable housing. That means more than just a handful of affordable housing. Join me today on and fill out the form to receive news on the next steps.
