Involved Seniors for Justice, a KOCO initiative, brings together seniors to advocate for one another in communities throughout Chicago. They campaign for decent living conditions, equitable treatment and respect from managers and administrators in senior living facilities.

Currently, Involved Seniors for Justice is compiling reports from residents in private and publicly owned senior buildings in order to create a Senior Bill of Rights. Once completed, the Senior Bill of Rights likely will be introduced to the Chicago City Council to get protections for seniors written into Chicago law.

Seniors so far have complained that some of their apartments in buildings have rats, roaches and bed bugs, that managers have been dismissive of their complaints and have treated seniors rudely. Some have even said they have been wrongly threatened with eviction.

Involved Seniors for Justice is gathering their grievances and creating a document that will be the basis for the Senior Bill of Rights.
