On November 12 the CBA Coalition marched with over 100 people to stop displacement and demand a CBA Ordinance, 2 people were arrested after they engaged in civil disobedience, shutting down the University of Chicago construction site.

During the City Budget Fight the Mental Health Movement along with the Community Wellness Coalition held a powerful rally at City Hall demanding investment in Mental Health and the re-opening of closed public clinics. 

STOP has also recently joined with the Chicago Housing Initiative, the Shriver Center, and others to sue the City of Chicago for intentionally segregating the city in violation of the Fair Housing Act.
