STILL BUILDING: Edward Redd mingles with guests during the YEMBA 10th year anniversary celebration at Nineteenth Century Club in Oak Park.

N. Lawndale native doubles as engineer, mentor Edward Redd founded Y.E.M.B.A. 10 years ago as a way to give back

By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Growing up in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood, Edward Redd, 36, knew the odds were stacked against him. His father, a gang member, was killed when he was five years old, leaving his mother to raise five children in a crime-ridden, poverty-stricken community.

Redd, who is the oldest of his parents’ children, said that it took a positive village of adults, peers and impressionable experiences to show him the way out of the West Side, through college and into a successful electrical engineering career. “There were various individuals who mentored me along the way and I had some unique experiences,” Redd, who lives in Maywood, said in an interview on Nov. 26.

Proud to partner with Austin Talks

“Because of my academics, in middle school I was able to go to UIC for the summer and do a program that involved meeting people of different ethnicities.” Seeing and living that diversity, Redd said, helped propel him to Marquette University, where he majored in electrical and computer engineering.

West Side lawmaker to run for city treasurer position

Melissa Conyears-Ervin endorsed by slew of West Side black elected officials By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

A West Side state lawmaker and the wife of an alderman recently filed paperwork to run for city treasurer. State Rep. Melissa Conyears-Ervin (10th) kicked off her campaign for the citywide post on Dec. 2 at the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America’s Chicago office, 37 S. Ashland Ave. Conyears-Ervin, the wife of 28th Ward Ald. Jason Ervin, was elected to the General Assembly last year, replacing former representative Pamela Reaves-Harris. During her comments, Conyears-Ervin touted her academic background and professional experience. “I have worked in corporate America for over 15 years, hold a degree in finance from Eastern Illinois and an MBA from Roosevelt University, am raising a family, and represent the people of the 10th District of Illinois’ House of Representatives,” she said in a statement her office released the day of her kickoff. “I have worked in my community at Breakthrough Urban Ministries, mentored young women looking for guidance in life through my church, and my husband and I organize a back to school festival that helps thousands of children each year get what they need to be successful on the first day of school,” Conyears-Ervin continued.

CANDIDATES Filed

If no candidate in any given race gets at least 50 percent of the vote in the February elections, then the top two-highest votegetting candidates will face each other in runoff elections on April 2, 2019. In all, 212 candidates filed to run in next year’s local citywide election, and among those candidates are 45 incumbents seeking reelection, according to Ballotpedia. Four aldermen are running unopposed. “In 2015, 44 incumbent council members ran for re-election,” Ballotpedia explains. “Seven were defeated — an incumbent reelection rate of 84 percent. Heading into the 2019 election, 13 city council members (26 percent) were first elected in 2015.” To find more information on potential ballot objections and other election matters, visit chicagoelections.com.

do next.” The state representative framed her candidacy as part of the national reaction to the election of President Donald Trump in 2016. In the November midterm elections, a historic number of women were elected to local and national seats. “Who do you think stepped up to fix the mess that Trump put us in? Women,” Conyears-Ervin said. “We marched in 2017. We ran for office in 2018. And we won.” Conyears-Ervin, who was born on the South Side and raised in Austin, said that as treasurer she would leverage the “billions of dollars of municipal deposits” that the city controls “to help Chicago communities grow at the same rate, regardless of their zip code.” According to her campaign’s statement, the state representative “believes Chicago’s investments should observe a triple bottom line, ensuring city money isn’t used to harm the environment or working families.” Conyears-Ervin’s campaign said that the state representative has the support of Congressman Danny K. Davis (7th), state Sen. Kimberly Lightford (4th), state Rep. Camille Y. Lilly (78th), Ald. Michael Scott, Jr. (24th) and Cook County Commissioner Dennis Deer (2nd), among other elected officials and union representatives.

HOLIDAY SURPRISE: Elaine Lee, (third from left), the winner of the 2017 Home Giveaway Lottery, joins Rob Rose, the executive director of the Cook County Land Bank Authority (far left), and Bridget Gainer, the Land Bank’s chairwoman (second from right), in Lee’s new home.

Land Bank to give away rehabbed home Applicants have until Dec. 14 to register for lottery, winner announced Dec. 21 By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

The Cook County Land Bank Authority, an agency created in 2013 to help attract developers to tax-delinquent properties, announced on Nov. 26 that it’s giving away a move-in ready, fully rehabbed home in Maywood to the winner of the authority’s Home Giveaway Lottery. The lottery, Land Bank officials said, was introduced last year “as a way to raise awareness for the Land Bank’s Homebuyer Direct Program, which breaks down barriers to homeownership and helps transform communities by offering fixer-upper homes across Cook County at below-market prices.” Interested individuals have until Dec. 14 to register for the lottery, the winner of which will be announced on Dec. 21. Land Bank officials said that they will not disclose the exact address of the home, only confirming that it is located in Maywood. “Through initiatives like the Homebuyer Direct Program, we are working every day to eliminate barriers that have historically kept home ownership out of reach for many residents,” said Rob Rose, the executive director of the Cook County Land Bank Authority. Houses in the Homebuyer program range between $30,000 and $180,000, and are located in Chicago neighborhoods like Roseland, Auburn-Gresham and South Shore, as well as in suburbs, Land Bank officials said.

Interested buyers can work with brokers to purchase the homes with cash or financing. There are no income restrictions on buyers. According to an FAQ on the lottery posted to the Land Bank’s website, employees who work for the county or the village of Maywood are not eligible to register. The Land Bank will only accept one person per entry and interested registrants must be at least 18 years old, among other requirements.

10 years strong from page 1 “I now have a successful career and have garnered international accolades and honors with respect to engineering; but for me, it was more important that I be able to give our youth the opportunity to dream,” Redd said. So, in 2007, he founded Y.E.M.B.A., Inc. — short for Youth Educational Mentoring Basketball Association. At its inception, Redd said, the organization’s focus was giving kids the opportunity to play basketball as a hook to engaging them in other areas of their lives. Since then, the organization’s structure and scale have changed, but the mission is the same. Redd and his team at Y.E.M.B.A. work with middle-schoolers at Brooks and Julian for one day each week and three hours each day. “We do a three-hour workshop each day,” Redd said. “The first hour we help them with homework and do tutoring, the second hour is another homework workshop and the third hour is the recreational component.” Over the last 10 years, Redd explained, Y.E.M.B.A. has served approximately 1,000 kids, around two dozen of whom have returned to work as paid mentors after completing the program themselves. This year, Redd said, the organization is expecting to work with 120 Oak Park middleschoolers like Davion, who lauded the organization’s ability to help manage his anxiety and make new friends. “Y.E.M.B.A. is a place where I can go and ask questions,” he said. “I’ve improved my leadership and communication skills, and have undoubtedly learned new perspectives from people I would’ve normally never had the courage to talk to.” Redd said that the organization focuses on “three core tiers of programming” that include building leadership and character, substance abuse education and financial literacy. “We’ve worked with Dominican Univer-

Redd explained that the organization is always looking for institutional partners, volunteers and donors to expand its mentoring, tutoring and support offerings — resources that are critical to the students that Y.E.M.B.A. serves. More than 60 percent of the organization’s young participants who took a survey that Y.E.M.B.A. administered reported having transferred into Oak Park during middle school. Most of them, Redd said, come from

places like Austin and his native North Lawndale. Charles Isaac, a River Forest resident and Y.E.M.B.A. mentor since 2016, said that the needs of this particular population of students are sometimes masked by the general perception of Oak Park and River Forest. “People assume that because we’re in Oak Park and River Forest, all kids are well off and aren’t struggling,” Isaac said. “But there are still some kids with limitations and struggles. We give them a chance to share their experiences and empower them to make sure they’re advocating and speak-

ing up for themselves.” Redd explained that “it takes some time” for young people coming from lower-income areas into affluence communities like Oak Park to successfully transition, but the work is well worth the wait. “It’s difficult to navigate,” he said. “We’re a free program. We don’t have the answer to all of these issues, but we’re a resource that works to help kids keep their focus and be successful along the journey.” To learn more about Y.E.M.B.A., visit yemba-inc.org.

Crime and its consequences

T

he just-under-2-minute video I saw, filmed by a bystander, probably from a balcony, did not generate any laughs. In the video, a white SUV with very dark tinted windows is zooming down the street being pursued by two police cars. The fact that the white SUV ends up coming back to the very spot where the film begins, is an indication that the person driving it was not familiar with the neighborhood. It’s around 8:45 in the morning, with pedestrians and especially children out and about, and the driver is speeding, oblivious to the dangers he’s presenting to others, himself and the police in pursuit. Now police chases don’t end well and this was no exception. According to the police and eyewitnesses, the driver of the car tried to run over a police officer. The response from the police is predictable as well. The officer pulls his gun and shoots! The criminal — and that’s what a person who steals a car is — is shot in the head. In most instances, people would be glad that a criminal got his just due. But in this case, it turns out that the criminal is 15-year-old De Avion Ashley. And judging from the news media reporting it, Ashley’s family, and everybody else, is trying to make the kid the innocent victim. Let’s start with the media. Instead of portraying Ashley as the budding criminal he is, the media hyped on the fact that he is 15 years old and was shot in the head by the police. Ashley’s family, while acknowledging he was wrong for having stolen the vehicle, proceeded to defend him as well. “Hammond police shot an unarmed kid who was fleeing the scene in an obvious attempt to get away and not harm any pursuing Hammond officers,” said his cousin and family spokesperson, Demetrius Nash. Can you believe that? An attempt to flee and not harm the officers. Give me a freaking break! As would be expected, some black folks have also jumped on the same bandwagon as the family. They are more in-

terested in lamenting that the police shot the kid than critiquing the kid for being a car thief. Nor was there any mention of why he wasn’t in school at that time of the day. Those are the kind of details that people overlook when trying to justify bad behavior. Grand Theft Auto is a legitimate criminal charge. Unlike the video game, Ashley has suffered real and not make-believe consequences for his actions. Fortunately, the bullet that entered his head did not kill him. But the charges he faces and the time he may spend in jail are a different story. There was a time when black parents would have the so-called “Talk” with their children. That talk would include their behaviors regarding the police. It would also be tempered with the emphasis on noncriminal behavior by the young person. If I had to place a bet on whether this family spoke with Ashley about such situations and behaviors, my money would be leaning toward the fact that they hadn’t. The family spokesperson trying to turn Ashley into Indiana’s version of Laquan McDonald — an innocent victim — says a lot about the mindset the kid was raised in. He may not have deserved being shot in the head, but his actions and behavior sure led to that outcome. The police officers involved in the shootings are not white cops. Two are black and one is Hispanic. That could possibly be a reason why the kid had only one bullet in his head and not 16! They also wore body cameras that will better give us a visual account of what happened. Although that video footage has yet to be released, it will be interesting to see what it contains. In the meantime, I hope parents begin to talk with their children about today’s reality. Any kind of theft is not a joke. And behaviors that bring them into contact with the police can have devastating consequences. Our young people are the captains of their own ships, and the directions they choose to take are matters of life and death!

New affordable housing could come to North Lawndale Ogden Commons would be across the street from Mt. Sinai Hospital By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

During a Nov. 15 meeting, members of the Chicago Plan Commission unanimously cleared the way for a development at the south end of North Lawndale — across the street from Mt. Sinai Hospital — that will include affordable housing, retail spaces and medical offices. The Ogden Commons is a collaboration between Sinai Health System, Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, the Chicago Housing Authority and the Habitat Company, a River North-based real estate company that has a history of working on affordable housing developments. According to Jeff Head, Habitat’s VicePresident, the goal of the residential part of the project is to replace some of the public housing lost when Ogden Courts public housing development was demolished and to provide affordable housing for residents working at Mt. Sinai Hospital and the neighboring Cinespace studio. Head said that many people who work there have to commute long distances and they are

hoping to make the trip easier and shorter. During the Nov. 15 meeting, which was held at Chicago City Hall, Habitat officials touted the development’s environmental friendliness. They also said that they were taking part in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development ‘s Section 3 program, which requires entities that receive HUD funds to provide job opportunities to low-income residents. The development will comprise three buildings. The one along Ogden Avenue will be a three-story, 50,000-square foot building with retail spaces on the lower floor. The plan also calls for two parking lots to be built behind it, one facing 13th Place and one facing Tallman Avenue. The developer has an option to build a three-story residential building over the parking lot facing Tallman Ave. in the future, after the other buildings are built. That part would be contingent on funding availability. Head told the Plan Commission that they made sure that ambulances will be able to drop off patients in the front and in the back. North of 13th Street would have two residential buildings. The larger, four-story, L-shaped 76,000 square foot building will be located on the west side and it will have a mix of studios, one-bedroom and twobedroom apartments. A smaller, three-story building will be

A parking lot will be built in the courtyard between the two buildings, and a smaller parking lot will be built north of the east building. Overall, 80 percent of the residential units will be affordable. Half of those units will be available to Chicago housing Authority clients with housing vouchers. The remaining half will be kept affordable due to tax credits. Jay Longo, the principal at Solomon Cordwell Buenz architecture firm, told the council that they are going for an environmentally friendly design.

“We’re recycling our waste and diverting it from landfills,” he said. Ald. Jason Ervin (28th), whose ward includes the project site, said that there will be opportunities not only for local-residents, but for area black-owned businesses to benefit from the development. “As far as hiring, we do have a local African-American contractor that’s part of joint venture,” he said. “It is our goal to not only maximize local employment, but to also involve local contractors.” CONTACT: igorst3@hotmail.com

After School Matters is now taking applications for its spring 2019 lineup of programs, which will start the week of Feb. 12, according to a statement the organization released Dec. 3. “Students can choose from more than 400 programs in the arts, communications and leadership, sports and STEM offered at various Chicago public high schools, as well as Chicago Park District, Chicago Public Library and community organization locations throughout the city,” the statement reads. “Programs will also continue to be offered downtown at Gallery 37 Center for the Arts and at The Michael and Karyn Lutz Center for After School Matters in Belmont Cragin.

Jan. 2 to Jan. 5 at Gallery 37 Center for the Arts, located downtown. “After School Matters programs offer teens an opportunity to expand their subject-matter specific skills, while also developing critical thinking skills in collaboration, problem-solving, social awareness and more,” officials said in the statement. “Multiple independent studies have confirmed that teens who participate in After School Matters programs have higher Freshmen On-Track rates, improved school-day attendance and higher graduation rates than their peers.” According to the statement, there will be nearly 7,000 opportunities for young people to take advantage of After School Matters’ paid apprenticeships and internships. “Participating teen apprentices will be eligible to earn a stipend of up to $425 depending on the program level; interns can earn up to $10.50 per hour.” Mary Ellen Caron, the CEO of After School Matters, said that the “skills that teens learn in our programs help them to develop a strong foundation that they can build upon throughout the rest of their lives.” To apply for After School Matters programs, visit afterschoolmatters.org.

Panel: Ownership key to manufacturing diversity

Leaders gathered during council meeting on Nov. 28 to explore ‘Race and Ownership in Manufacturing’ By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

A group of community leaders gathered for a panel discussion at Freedman Seating Company, 4545 W. Augusta Blvd. in West Humboldt Park on Nov. 28 to discuss ways that manufacturing companies can become more racially and ethnically diverse. The panel discussion, themed “Race and Ownership in Manufacturing,” was the monthly meeting of the Chicagoland Manufacturing Renaissance Council. Panelists included Colin Cosgrove, president of Laystrom Manufacturing, a Hermosa-based metal fabrication company; Dr. Byron Brazier, pastor at Woodlawn’s Apostolic Church of God; Dr. Harry Alston, head of Safer Foundation, a North Lawndale nonprofit that helps ex-inmates reintegrate into society; and Dr. Teresa Cordova, Director of University of Illinois at Chicago’s Great Cities Institute, a research organization. David Robinson, CMRC’s communications director and the panel’s moderator, began the discussion by exploring how diversity improves the profitability of businesses. “That’s definitely true [in my experience],” said Cordova, adding that one area where diversity is lacking is among the business executives. “Whether its leadership of agencies, leadership of businesses, diversity is really important. C-suites, that’s where we’re not seeing diversity — where the decisions occur, where people’s lives [are affected], that’s where we’re not seeing the diversity. That’s where the shift needs to be.” Cosgrove said that he’s been in manufacturing for the past 24 years. Originally from Ireland, Cosgrove said that about 50 percent of the people he worked with “were born outside this country.” “That’s a lot of Polish, a lot of Mexican, a lot of Vietnamese, many different countries — very few Irish people,” he said. I’m seeing [the benefits of a diverse workplace] and experienced it. [It results in] different ideas, solving problems for our customers.” Cosgrove said that one area where he feels manufacturing is lacking is gender. While he has seem some women involved in manufacturing, the industry still has some way to go to bring more balance. “I would welcome more women coming into manufacturing,” he said. “Any way we can contribute to changing the message, that there is space for women in manufacturing.” Brazier argued that the diversity “is a decision that people have to make” and that something that has to be done by both sides. Minority-owned companies have to

DIVERSITY WANTED: Community leaders said that more women are needed in the corporate boardrooms and offices of manufacturing companies. pursue opportunities and so do white-owned businesses. When asked what policy decisions that Illinois Governor-elect JB Pritzker and Chicago’s mayor — whoever that ends up being — can make to promote inclusion, the panelists agreed that it was a complicated issue. Cosgrove said that, if anything, the state and city governments should be more supportive of smaller manufacturers, which he feels, hasn’t been the case in recent years. He and Cordova both argued that educating students about opportunities and manufacturing would help as well. “I think advocating, being front and center, marketing to parents, marketing to students that there is a career [in manufacturing], there’s growth and opportunity [works],”

Cosgrove said. Brazier argued that the city would benefit from more long-term planning that doesn’t depend on any one mayor staying in office for more than one term. Alston said that he could think of several concrete policy changes, including doing more to incentivize business owners to hire ex-offenders and making it illegal for landlords to ask tenants about criminal records. He said that while a criminal record can be an obstacle to finding jobs, it can get in the way of renting an apartment, too. Dan Swinney, CMRC’s executive director, noted that 99 percent of industrial businesses are white-owned and asked, “What’s the impact of that reality on black communalities and black youth?”

Alston argued that it does affect the industrial businesses’ hiring decisions “What you find is minority-owned businesses hire more people from communities than white-owned businesses, even though they’re good corporate citizens in the community,” he said. “Part of what this has meant is we [the people of color] received lower wages, and harder jobs,” Cordova said. “Part of the challenge is not just the challenge related to race and color, but challenge of shared ownership.” Cosgrove said that, if black youth don’t see people who look like them owning industrial businesses, they’re not going to think that ownership is for them.

Nonprofit job training program headed to Austin

City Council votes on zoning change required for Heartland Alliance to start program in closed school By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

The Chicago City Council recently approved a zoning change that would allow the nonprofit Heartland Alliance to setup a job training program for former prisoners in a portion of a shuttered elementary school in Austin at 815-831 N. Leamington Ave. Ald. Emma Mitts (37th), whose ward includes the site, said in a statement that the project has been in the works “for a while.” She said that the project will go a long way toward addressing high unemployment in Austin and ensure that people most likely to face barriers to employment are able to live productive lives. Mitts introduced the ordinance on Sept. 20 and it was unanimously approved by the full City Council on Nov. 14 as part of a routine vote. The building has gone through various uses over the years. According to Archdiocese of Chicago’s Office of Catholic Schools, the site was home to Our Lady Help of Chris-

tians elementary school until it closed in 1998. In 2002, San Miguel School, a Back of the Yards private junior high school, teamed up with St. Joseph Services charitable organization to launch what was dubbed San Miguel School-Gary Comer Campus. According to the school’s website, the owners closed it in 2012 due to “economic circumstances.” Heartland Alliance is an anti-poverty organization that operates a wide array of programs, including several workforce development programs. On the West Side, that includes East Garfield Park-based Chicago FarmWorks, where residents facing “multiple barriers to employment” can get job skills and experience by working on a farm; and FamilyWorks Lawndale, which helps residents who either live in public housing or have rental subsidies get and keep jobs. In her statement, Mitts said that Heartland’s new Austin project “addresses the critical need for job training and placement to help reduce Austin’s over 20 percent unemployment rate. “My community and I support this innovative approach to empower and expand opportunities for local residents seeking to recover [and] establish more stable, productive lives.” Mitts also stated that the project received “strong community support after numer-

ous meetings and information forums,” but didn’t elaborate beyond that. One of the other services Heartland provides is refugee resettlement. This summer, Casa Guadalupe shelter, which is also located within Mitts’ ward, housed some of the refugee children detained at the U.S.Mexican border and separated from their families. The Washington Post reported allegations that children were mistreated and not properly supervised. At the time, Mitts was among several West Side politicians who expressed concerns about the allegations and called for them to be investigated. On July 31, Heartland issued a statement indicating that their internal investigation “found no evidence to support the reported claims.” However, as the statement noted, Illinois Department of Child and Family Services and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General are conducting their own investigations, which were still ongoing as of Dec. 2. Mitts did not respond to a follow-up question as to whether she had any concerns about Heartland’s work in light of the allegations; however, in her original statement, she expressed confidence in Heartland Alliance as a whole. “Heartland Alliance is a 130-year-old human rights organization which provides

needed services to Chicago residents in the areas of housing, job training and social justice, among other areas,” Mitts stated. “I appreciate many of the supportive programs sponsored by the Alliance.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com
