WHEREAS, ln 1985, Mayor Harold Washington appointed Richard Pfeiffer as a founding of the Committee on Gay/Lesbian lssues, and he was reappointed by Mayor Richard M. Daley to serve on the reconstituted Advisory Council on Gay and Lesbian lssues; and
member
WHEREAS, Richard Pfeiffer coordinated this years Chicago Pride Parade, drawing hundreds of thousands of spectators in the most well-attended year in the events history and marking 50 years since the parade was first organized; and WHEREAS, A staunch activist who fought for representation and empowered LGBTQ
people in Chicago to live openly, Richard Pfeiffer will always be remembered as a legendary advocate, a mentor and a friend to many; and WHEREAS, Richard Pfeiffer is survived by his beloved husband of 48 years, Tim Frye, and countless friends in the LGBTQ community and throughout Chicago; now, therefore,
Be lt Resolved, That we, the Mayor and members of the City Council of the City of Chicago, assembled this 13th day of November 2019, do hereby honor the life and memory of Richard Pfeiffer; and Be lt Further Resolved, That suitable copies of this resolution be presented to the family of Richard Pfeiffer as a token of our honor, gratitude, and utmost respect.

On motion of Alderman Mitchell, seconded by Aldermen Tunney, Cappleman
and
Osterman, the foregoing resolution was Adopted by a rising vote.

At this point in the proceedings, the Honorable Lori Lightfoot, Mayor, rose and joining with the members of the City Council and the people of Chicago expressed her condolences on the passing of Richard Pfeiffer. "Richard was a tireless LGBTQ+ rights activist", the tt/ayor proclaimed, and his boundless energy helped him to lead countless advocacy groups over the past few decades, including the Chicago Gay Alliance, the Mayors Advisory Council, the Gay Speakers Bureau, and many others. "But perhaps the one contribution Chicagoans will most remember Richard for is our Pride Parade", the Mayor declared, and the remarkable symbol that it has become. Cutting across all demographics and populations this event is far more than a parade, the Mayor observed, and rather a celebration of our values and who we are as a city. Attracting people from across the nation and world the Pride Parade creates an opportunity for our youth to "see people live their authentic lives and be who they are", the Mayor stated, and its success has become a tremendous economic engine for our city and a showcase for celebrities and politicians. Richard devoted nearly 50 years organizing and coordinating the annual Chicago Pride Parade, the Mayor continued, and that hard work helped it become the overwhelming celebration of humanity, love and acceptance it is today.
"Pride is about being who you are, and not being afraid to show it", the Mayor stated, and Richard fought to ensure others had that opportunity. Declaring that "Chicago is a better place because of him", Mayor Lightfoot lauded Richard Pfeiffer as a "living example of the power of speaking out and fighting for what you know is right". As we recognize the life and legacy of Richard Pfeiffer together we can also continue his work, the Mayor declared, and in doing so we can ensure that our city "remains a beacon of hope and continues to be a place where every person can walk down the street unafraid and proud". Mayor Lightfoot then left the Mayors rostrum and strode to the commissioners gallery where she presented a parchment copy of the memorial resolution to Tim Frye, the beloved husband of Richard Pfeiffer.

CITY OF CHICAGO

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of Chicago:

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN -. I transmit herewith, together with Alderman Maldonado, a resolution recognizing November 21,2019, as World Pancreatic Cancer Day.

The following is said proposed resolution:

WHEREAS, World Pancreatic Cancer Day is November 21, 2019, and is a time to bring people from around the world together to highlight the need for greater awareness, funding, and research for pancreatic cancer; and WHEREAS, While death rates are declining for many other cancers, death rates are increasing for pancreatic cancer, with an estimated 1,184 expected to die from the disease every day worldwide; and WHEREAS, Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, with approximately five percent of those diagnosed in the United States surviving five years; and

WHEREAS, lt is estimated that in 2025,557,688 new cases of pancreatic cancer will be diagnosed globally; and WHEREAS, On World Pancreatic Cancer Day, the global pancreatic cancer community will unite to fight against the worlds toughest cancer and raise awareness about the symptoms and risks of pancreatic cancer, and the urgent need for early detection; and WHEREAS, There is no standard screening test for pancreatic cancer, which is why it is essential to know the symptoms and risks and to educate family and friends; and
WHEREAS, Early diagnosis is key for attaining successful outcomes in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. Patients diagnosed in time for surgery are more likely to live five years and beyond, and the sooner one is diagnosed, the higher the chance one will be eligible for surgery and the sooner one can receive treatment, enroll in a clinical trial, and get the support that will empower that person to fight and survive this disease; and WHEREAS, lt is important to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer on social media by following World Pancreatic Cancer Day on Twitter and lnstagram @worldpancreatic and on Facebook at facebook.com/worldpancreaticcancerday, and posting using the hashtags WPCD and DemandBetter; and WHEREAS, Chicagoans can also make a difference by advocating for more government funding of pancreatic cancer research, especially for achieving earlier detection; and
WHEREAS, Through a combined effort, Chicagoans can bring greater attention, awareness, and better outcomes to this deadly disease and those affected by it; now, therefore,

At this point in the proceedings, the Honorable Lori Lightfoot, Mayor, rose and joined with the members of the City Council in support of World Pancreatic Cancer Day. The symptoms of pancreatic cancer are difficult to detect and often discovered too late for any preventative measures, the Mayor observed, making the survival rate for people who are suffering with this terrible disease less than other cancers. And unlike other cancers that have considerable research and development budgets and where progress is being made, pancreatic cancer remains one of the few for which thats not true, the Mayor stated, and we need to take every opportunity to recognize and help those who are battling this insidious disease. Reflecting on the poignant and personal story shared by Alderman Maldonado of his late wife Nancy Franco who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and the brief six difficult and emotional weeks in which the family shared their final memories, Mayor Lightfoot noted that far too many similar stories are unfortunately told by many families whose loved ones become sick from this terrible disease and pledged that "everything that we can do to raise awareness and demand additionalfunding and research we will do as a city".
