The Resident Association of Greater Englewood
The Resident Association of Greater Englewood (R.A.G.E.) is an asset-based grassroots organization that strategizes to create tangible solutions and mobilize residents and resources to restore community. R.A.G.E. focuses on invaluable assets within Englewood – its residents – and works to support them as powerful change agents for the community.
Recognizing that a key to repairing the harm within the neighborhood is enabling the residents of Englewood to act with real agency, Chicago Beyond’s partnership with R.A.G.E. includes $250,000 to seed a resident-led fund, which will allow residents to invest in ideas by Englewood residents. Ideas range from economic and community development to employment, civic engagement, and arts activism.
Chicago Beyond’s multiyear partnership with R.A.G.E. will allow R.A.G.E. to build out its organization to continue actualizing its vision for Englewood.
