Sponsored by Northside POWER , a grassroots community organization that addresses systemic hunger and poverty issues in Rogers Park, the forum will be held TODAY, Thursday, December 18th, 4:30 p.m., at the Good News Community Kitchen, 7649 N. Paulina.
Joining me will be Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, State Senator Heather Steans,State Representative Julie Hamos, and Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin . Together we will discuss efforts to address the human costs of the economic recession at the federal, state, county and city level.
