Who is Hank Webber? (or how does this involve you?)

The University of Chicago has two members on the board of WPIC, Hank Webber (Vice President of Community and Government Affairs) and Rudy Nimocks (Executive Director of the UCPD). Tenants and students have been seeking to meet with them, and Hank Webber has agreed to do so. Next week he will meet with 3 members of the Southside Solidarity Network and 3 leaders from the Grove Parc Tenants Association. In this meeting, we want to be able to show him that UC students, faculty, and staff believe their VP of Community Affairs ought to be protecting public housing, not destroying it.
