Please Stop The Neighborhood Crime In Chicago

Lori E. Lightfoot

Mayor of Chicago

121 N La Salle St.

Chicago IL. 60602

 

Mayor Lightfoot:

 

Please stop the neighborhood crime in Chicago.

One long term solution is to use the “The Science of Reading” to ensure every CPS student can, at the least, read at grade their level. 

Another way to stop the crime is to help low income residents solve their problems as quickly as possible. With one phone or internet search a resident should be connected to a government or nonprofit organization that will help them solve any challenge.

Give Chicago residents a real feeling that The City of Chicago will help them solve their problems.

 

Thank You.

I agree with Dr. Carl Bell; Black people (African Americans) are very relational, as opposed to being transactional.
