Opening Wednesday, March 8th, from 6:30PM - 8PM
Join us for an evening with Alan Mills, executive director of the Uptown People’s Law Center, who in addition to a long career of advocating on behalf of prisoners, also defends Chicagoans experiencing homelessness. Learn from him about the ways Chicagoans experiencing homelessness are criminalized, hear about the laws that most impact them, learm about their rights and about how you can support their efforts for housing justice.
This event is a component of House, Weinberg/Newton Gallery’s winter exhibition presented by Red Line Service. Red Line Service works with Chicagoans experiencing or concerned about homelessness to reframe art as a broad social justice endeavor. Committed to ending homelessness, Red Line Service co-founders, artist Billy McGuinness and curator and art historian Rhoda Rosen, have teamed up with the gallery to mount an exhibition as well as a robust programming calendar with the intention of opening and expanding critical dialogues about poverty, social responsibility, and culture.
