Mayor Emanuel: Invest in crime preventive programs!

Please sign and share this petition asking for the mayor to allocate the remaining property tax rebate funds (~$15 million) to youth programing and crime prevention.

Specifically for:

  • Winter youth employment programs
  • To create mentorship programs for 5th and 6th graders
  • To create a residential security pilot program
  • To establish “street-level violence" prevention programs

Right now the mayor wants to allocate this remaining money to things like trees, parks, business incubators and rehabbing homes but none of those investments will be made in Hermosa or the NWside.
