The Basics

Uptown Pigeon is 100% citizen based journalism. It exists for the sole purpose of electing legislators that are more ethical, equitable and accountable to the Uptown Chicago community than are currently in office.

There are roughly 50,000 people in Uptown and countless animals. Uptown Pigeon and its associated social media are for those 50,000 people and countless animals.

All of them, equally.

Whether it’s real estate or experiencing homelessness, it’s political. Whether it’s the largest property tax increases in Chicago history or non-stop revenue grabs, it’s political. Whether it’s closing schools and health clinics or gifting wealthy campaign donors millions of dollars, it’s political. Whether it’s the mass killing of innocent animals or bullying, even arresting caring senior citizens or local artists, it’s political. And so on, everything in Chicago is political.

What Uptown Pigeon is not

It is important to note Uptown Pigeon is not a for-profit or not-for-profit corporate entity. Even though many people that will be associated with Uptown Pigeon may work for various for-profit or not-for-profit corporate entities, or be volunteer members of various for-profit or not-for-profit corporate entities, everyone associated with Uptown Pigeon does so in their individual capacity. Uptown Pigeon is strictly citizen based journalism.

Uptown Pigeon does not take corporate donations, nor does it pay anyone associated with it wages or fees, etc.

Uptown Pigeon is not anonymous.

Real names = real facts, no hidden agendas or lies. Anonymity = Fake facts, hidden agendas and lies.
