2019: A Look Back

A Year of Backing the Fight

Since day one, Chicago Beyond’s work has been rooted in backing the fight for Chicago’s youth – from investing in innovative ideas to tackling systemic injustices that affect young people nationwide. And 2019 was no different.

This year, we published Why Am I Always Being Researched? and challenged power dynamics that get in the way of true impact for young people. We invested in the mental wellness of youth experiencing parental incarceration, and young men experiencing trauma, and built a new space – Chicago’s Home for Social Innovation.

All of these examples and more would not be possible without supporters like you, who also back the fight for creating a more equitable city for all young people. Please take a glance at our past year in the video above.

Thank you for being a part of the fight for Chicago’s youth – here’s to 2020 and beyond.
