Aurea and her four children live in a rapidly gentrifying area of Logan Square. She has been working tirelessly with Somos Logan Square to help organize a nearby SRO where the rights of residents are not being respected. Her father lives in the SRO and has been exploited by the landlord, who requires him to do many hours of custodial work in exchange for waiving the rent. This comes out to well below minimum wage. As a result of this constant physical labor, Aurea's father's medical condition worsened and he has been in and out of the hospital, and unable to work.
Aurea has taken time off from her job to care for her father. As a result of his medical situation and the need for her help organizing the tenants union, her income is even less than usual. Please donate to help us get Aurea caught up on her rent so she can continue to do her important work of caring for her father and organizing the SRO tenants.
Any money raised in excess of the goal will go into the Somos Logan Square emergency housing fund, to help people who work with us from having their organizing work derailed by the very conditions we're fighting against.
