Each morning throughout Lent, we are taking our Compact for housing justice to the streets through public prophetic prayer and protest. A full list of locations will be posted at 40 Days of Prayer and Protest. Here is a list of locations for February 11-13.
Thursday, February 11 – 7 am at California Blue Line El station just down the street from the construction site of the Logan Square Towers–two new luxury high-rises that will displace working families from Logan Square.
Friday, February 12 – 7 am at 2525 N. Milwaukee, the former Milshire Hotel, a single room occupancy (SRO) hotel that was closed in November, 2014, displacing dozens of low-income tenants. The property remains boarded up.
