The Chicago Cultural Alliance stands in solidarity with the African American community and all those who have marched in the name of justice and equality here in Chicago and across the United States. We understand the outrage and desperation reverberating across our great nation.  We urge our leaders at all levels of government not only to hear the voices but also to invest in communities of color and give them the resources they need not just to survive but to thrive.

As an Alliance that represents Chicago’s incredible diversity, we join the collective calls to end systemic racism as well as for peace and equality. Let us come together and build better and stronger communities through cultural enrichment and mutual respect.  Let us strive together to seek equity and further inclusivity for all our communities by making the extra effort to consider and care for all of those around us.  

Stay safe and support each other,
