Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) posted "Thank you, Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, for the recognition! Getting the Bring Chicago Home referendum on the ballot was just the first part of our collective effort to address homelessness. On March 19, we're voting YES on @BringChiHome!"

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) posted "Today marks the beginning of Black History Month, a tradition dating back nearly 100 years, of celebrating the beauty of Black and African American people and culture. Please share your stories about what Black History Month means to you!"

Ald. Lamont Robinson (4) posted "In honor of BHM, I'm hosting an Arts Showcase that highlights incredible Black musicians 🎸🎼 and spoken word artists here in Chicago. The event is free and it will be at Columbia College on Feb. 17. Light refreshments will be served at the reception following the showcase"

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50) posted "Mayor Johnson cast the tie-breaking vote to pass a biased cease fire resolution. The 23-23 vote is proof of how divisive this resolution was and how divided Chicago has become. I am disappointed that the Mayor widened the gulf instead of unifying us. We all want an end to the bloodshed, and we all want the protection of innocent civilians on both sides; however, the resolution that passed refused to condemn Hamas for the terrorist attack that saw 1,200 innocent Israelis murdered, 2,400 injured, and more than 240 kidnapped. It also failed to call on the international community to force Hamas to disarm and stop planning additional attacks. The resolution fundamentally contradicts U.S. policy on the conflict and threatens our nation’s efforts to broker a true and lasting peace."

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) posted "One month is never enough to celebrate the impact, the wealth of culture, the achievements, resilience and beauty of our Black siblings in the City and everywhere. We will always recognize the struggle as we strive for true justice. Much love and respect this Black History Month!"
