Sukkot Action for Housing Justice: Oct. 11

Graphic banner for portable sukkah

This graphic banner will be used in the portable Sukkah at the housing action day.

With American bankers meeting just feet away next week, Chicagoans will share stories about how the economic crisis has affected them.

It all happens on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at a special interfaith Sukkot action and press conference inside a makeshift Sukkah in front of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Chicago.

Representing shelter in a time of wandering and crisis, or the halfway point between slavery and liberation, this may be the first time a portable Sukkah has been used in a protest action.

During Sukkot, Chicago will be the location for a gathering of the Mortgage Bankers Association of America. Chicago, like so many cities, is in crisis. On an average month 500 families in Cook County fall into foreclosure and are displaced from their homes. Now is the time to stand with families in crisis and call for an economy that works for all of us.

Join JCUA and partnering organizations for a powerful interfaith action to demand Sukkat Shalom, a shelter of peace, for Chicago.
