Join Neighbors for Maya Hodari

The slogan “Neighbors for Maya Hodari” derives from the connection between ordinary families throughout our neighborhoods. It underscores our campaign’s core belief that the connectedness of Neighbors is the platform for our communities’ growth. I have deep roots on the Southside. My parents were active Southsiders in the 1970s & 1980s. My father was raised on the Southside. He helped spearhead the Afro American Patrolman’s League and later the Positive Anti Crime Trust. For the last 10 years, I’ve listened to our neighbors’ concerns and worked to improve our day-to-day experience. I’ve learned it is important for us to stand together in order to make a difference in Southside families’ quality of life. I believe I have the unique ability to leverage the current spirit of collaboration, with my affinity for Mighty Southside communities, and my 17 years of experience implementing revitalization initiatives across the City. Together, our collective ideas, energy and passion can turn this platform into real change for our families in the 20th Ward. We are in this together, so let’s go out and make change happen together!
