The Fierce Urgency of Now: A Gathering of Communities

  • Communities United 4749 North Kedzie Avenue, 2nd floor Chicago, IL, 60625 United States (map)

Every day, community members are coming together and making change. It is more important now than ever that we are united in our efforts. We have hope. This is why in December, Communities United and over 20 diverse partner organizations came together for a Unity March and rally. Over 300 people and elected officials participated despite the frigid weather! As a part of this work, community members began to develop a Unity Platform across communities and engaged elected leaders in passing joint Unity Resolutions for Chicago and Cook County. 

We have continued to unite communities to advance a
transformational, justice-centered agenda focused on protecting civil liberties and human rights, creating rapid response supports in communities; and dismantling the school to prison pipeline and the structures of mass incarceration. We are working on advancing healthcare access, education justice, community reinvestment, immigrant rights, and affordable housing. 

WE ASK YOU TO JOIN US
In moving forward with POWER
To advance PROGRESS
And make concrete CHANGE
