The Young Lords will hold a community rally to celebrate 40 Years as a human rights movement for Puerto Rican self determination and neighborhood empowerment. It will take place Sunday, September 21,2008 in Humboldt Park from 2-4:00 P.M. at San Lucas United Church of Christ,2914 W. North Ave. Chicago.

 

Humboldt Park is another Latino community currently being displaced by a gentrification program; devised, approved and promoted by Mayor Richard Daley. Programs like these are the origins of todays foreclosure problems and are part of Chicago's patronage practices since 1955. Prime real estate neighborhoods near downtown and Lake Michigan, where Latinos once lived and were displaced from in the last 50 years include: Lincoln Park,Old Town, New Town, Wicker Park,Lake View, Uptown, West Town, Pilsen and now Humboldt Park.
