My family has lived in this ward for four generations including my great grandparents who settled here from Germany. The 46th Ward historically has been a place where immigrants, migrants, and refugees have arrived and built viable communities. The Ward became home for a wide range of ethnic and racial communities, as well as the community organizations and social service agencies that serve them. The rising costs of rents has forced many of these organizations to move or even close down permanently, leaving ward residents without access to needed support and services.
As Alderperson, I will work to:
“The 46th ward is incredibly diverse. Many immigrants and refugees– including from across Asia– are a part of our community. Asian American Midwest Progressives is proud to endorse Angela because we believe she will lead the ward in a way that is accessible to and inclusive of neighbors from different backgrounds and language needs, regardless their race, income, or immigration status”
