Elevated Chicago is committed to supporting and working with and for communities, and we are committed to changing the systems that have historically held back communities of color from progress, opportunities and development for the people who live there.
We are here for residents who live and work in the communities around the seven transit stations that are the focus of our work. In many cases, we are those people. We are here for these people, who often feel ignored or on the verge of being pushed out by communities they helped to sustain for years – or decades even. In many cases, we are these people. We care deeply and genuinely, are committed to our values as we work to change policies, source funding and share knowledge that will strengthen these areas.
