WSCO Declaración de Inmigración / Statement on Immigration

Con las discusiones en las noticias de construyendo muros, y órdenes, y redadas que discrimen y separan, nosotros en WSCO sentimos la necesidad a reiterar nuestra visión.

Visualizamos una West Side justa, unida, independiente, y valiente donde toda nuestra gente está conectada, segura, saludable, y exitosa.

Por mucho tiempo, el West Side ha sido una comunidad que ha extendido una bienvenida a inmigrantes y continuamos creyendo fuertemente que las comunidades que valoran a toda su gente construyen una sociedad mejor para todos.

With talk in the news of building walls, and orders, and raids that discriminate and separate, we at WSCO feel the need to reiterate our vision.

We envision a just, united, self-reliant and bold West Side where all of our people are connected, safe, healthy and successful.

The West Side has long been a place that welcomes immigrants and we continue to believe strongly that communities which value all people build a better society for everyone.

More conversations and action to come! This is a key focus of our this year, so stay tuned!

 

New opportunities: Get involved!

Our mission at the West Side Community Organization is to “power the people of the West Side to work together to create a vibrant, thriving neighborhood for all.”  One of the ways we do that is to provide regular space for West Siders to meet, to discuss projects or initiatives (like those in our 10-year plan), to make decisions, and to ACT — or “committees” for short.

  • Put these dates on your calendar
  • Make sure you’re signed-up for email updates and follow us on Facebook
  • Contact us about planning or even LEADING a committee. We’re here to support you!

We know the power of community-led solutions and projects is unmeasurable. Get involved! A strong WSCO is a STRONG WEST SIDE.
