This includes stigma surrounding formerly incarcerated individuals, people of color, and young people. Job training and other programs play a vital role in assisting those who face such barriers, but these programs are threatened by looming budget cuts. Many Chicagoans also find themselves the victim of predatory lending practices and residents cited the lack of parks and recreation areas for young people in poor neighborhoods.
