As a team that calls Chicago home and holds it dear, we believe that racism has no place in our country or in our neighborhoods; we are devastated by the recent events our city has seen. As we rebuild and heal from both COVID-19 and the collective unrest, we look towards the future with the conviction and hope that progress, justice and change can come at long last… and swiftly.
In support of the Black Lives Matter movement and the profound vitality of our collective Chicago community, here are just a few resources and local businesses that our team believes in and supports, right now and in the future:

Poets, Authors and Creatives
This list falls short of the depth and breadth that exists in Chicago. Moving forward, we resolve that this won’t be simply a spark of passion that fades; this is something our city — and we as individuals — choose to incessantly support as we hope to create the change our world desperately needs.
