Protect Our Parks

Chicago, IL, United States

Protect Our Parks continues with its prosecution of its lawsuit in district court to enjoin the transfer of public park land in the unique and world famous Jackson Park. POP is fighting against the private benefit and use of the non-governmental Obama Foundation to construct an Obama Center (for $10 and 99 years), consisting of a 235 foot, twenty story high, Obama Tower in the pristine park- which will not be an official NARA administered Presidential Library as originally promoted.
