Loyal Policies: listen and remember, as we recount the true events that nearly destroyed the sanctity and security of our Tower. Savor these words, as we bring the sixth seasonal retelling of the Historical Records of the HartLife corporation to a close.
Season Seven of Our Fair City will begin in the Spring of 2016. Stay tuned until then for blooper reels, behined the scenes recordings, and more.

Every year, the Loyal Policies of HartLife celebrate Exclusion Day: the day the glorious founders of the Company sealed the tower away from the cold, Wolves, and dangers of the Outside, protecting their Policies from here to eternity. By Excluding the outside world, Loyal Policies would never be exposed to dangers like Free Thought, New Ideas, or Innovation.
We'd like to make a special note here: this Holiday season, the themes of exclusion, refugees, and societal control through xenophobia are everywhere in the news. We'd like to take the opportunity to raise awareness for several great organizations that are working to provide opportunities and help for refugees in American and around the world.
Here in Chicago, we'd recommend supporting RefugeeOne, which you can learn more about at refugeeone.org--they're a great organization dedicated to creating opportunities for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance. Globally, Doctors without Borders is a fantastic organization, helping people worldwide where the need is greatest, delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care. You can find their organization online at doctorswithoutborders.org. Finally, we recommend supporting the TransLatin@ Coalition, whose mission is to advocate for the specific needs of Trans Latin@ immigrants who reside in the US and plan advocacy strategies that would improve their quality of life. Support them and learn more at http://www.

The Waters are Coming. As the denizens of the tunnels grapple with the impending destruction of their underground home, we are left to wonder: who will survive? Who will escape? How will the glorious HartLife company continue without the support of its tunnel-dwellers?
Fear not, Loyal Policies. HartLife always survies.
