Derrion J. Albert: Sponsored by his Mother Anjanette Albert
- Governmental Officials in the City of Chicago in the State of Illinois.
- United States of America
The undersigned respectfully request that in honor of Derrion Albert, a Street, Avenue, or Boulevard be named in his memory. Derrion was an honor student at Fenger, 10220 S. Wallace St. On Sept. 24, 2009, he was walking home past the Agape Community Center, 342 W. 111th St., when he was caught in the middle of a fight between Fenger students who lived in “The Ville” neighborhood near the school, and students who lived more than four miles south in the Altgeld Gardens public housing development.
May the renaming serve as a significant reminder of the importance in fighting violent crimes in Chicago and to honor those victims in the community.
