CCH remembers Carol Aldape
With great sadness, CCH learned of the passing of grassroots leader, Law Project client, and beloved community member Carol Aldape. Carol was a longtime resident of Uptown and a fighter for the rights of people experiencing homelessness. She distributed the People’s Tribune and was a contributing author to the paper. She was a leader in the campaign to obtain housing for the residents of the Wilson and Lawrence viaducts in Uptown, where she lived with her two dogs, Bella and Chief, in 2017. Carol attended and planned actions protesting the city’s failure to provide her and other homeless people with housing, and was arrested during an action after blocking traffic on Lake Shore Drive with her neighbors.
