Riverbank Neighbors has a long history of working together for social justice. We cannot live in community with blinders to the inequities.
Twice we have been devastated to learn that someone has died under the bridge by the river.
Jan 2004-Raymond Greenwald froze. children found his body
Dec 2020-unknown man drown. found by his friend.
In past years, we’ve gathered to draw attention to the plight of the homeless and the need to increase funding for their needs and safety. Riverbank Neighbors organizers refuse to be separated from the refugees, asylum seekers, homeless, and dis-empowered. They are our brothers, our mothers, our kin, our human family.
We are rebuilding our website our of our commitment to advocate for the earth and justice for all.
Our community is deeply indebted to every organization and human being who shows kindness and generosity to the homeless. Please consider making a donation today. The Chicago Coalition for the Homeless
The more that class inequities make some callous, the more we double down on our commitment to seek ways to stand with those in need. Please check back as we add more resources for renters rights, mortgage assistance, affordable housing, and other resources for social justice.
