Discover Pilsen- Burham Plan Centennial

  1. 1. THE RESURRECTION PROJECT Social activism has shaped Pilsen since its inception as an industrial district along the Chicago River in the 1850s. Immigrants in the densely populated community found sup- port through settlement houses, churches and labor unions. Since the 1950s, Pilsen has been a Mexican-American neighborhood where generations have worked to create a healthy neighborhood that is proud of its Mexican roots. The Resurrection Project (TRP) is one of many organiza- tions working to improve local quality of life. In 1990, six parishes contributed $5,000 each to start TRP; that seed money has leveraged $169 million of reinvestment. TRP’s ACCOMPLISHMENTS INCLUDE: Developed more than 350 units of affordable housing. Convened the Pilsen Planning Committee and published the Pilsen quality-of-life plan. Trained hundreds of community leaders to work for social change. TRP’s BOLD PLANS INCLUDE: Developing holistic health programs, including a school health center at Orozco Academy. Creating affordable housing so that residents can stay in the neighborhood. Preserving Pilsen’s culture as a center of Mexican life. THE RESURRECTION PROJECT 1818 S.
