ATTEND AN EVENT
Renewing the Call to Action for Illinois Black Communities
January 13, 2021 from 9:00am to 10:00am
Last May, over 500 registrants participated in “A Call to Action for Illinois’ Black Communities”, a panel discussion organized by Chicago African Americans in Philanthropy, Grand Victoria Foundation, Woods Fund Chicago, and the JB and MK Pritzker Family Foundation. Recognizing the strong interest in a deeper understanding of important issues facing Black people throughout the state, we have engaged Wilburn Strategic Solutions, Inc. to assist with determining whether and how to structure a contemporary advocacy organization that pursues racial equity and justice for Black people in Illinois.
With a commitment to continued communications on this effort, we’d like to invite you to a webinar in the new year to share project status updates, explore early themes and opportunities, and provide a forum for learning and input.
To reduce the likelihood of this call being compromised you will need to register to join this call.
