Beyond the Table, Residents are “Acting Up” to Strengthen Community
The Chicago Community Trust is pleased to announce 71 recipients of the Acting Up awards. These prizes, totaling $135,500, will help support diverse projects to benefit neighborhoods across the region. This is the second annual Acting Up awards, which was launched to support ideas that emerged from On the Table conversations. For a full list of recipients and to watch their video submission see HERE.
Over the course of the coming months, we look forward to sharing the progress of these incredible projects.
Last year, as part of the inaugural Acting Up Awards, young students from the Village Leadership Academy devised a unique solution to combat sexual violence and help survivors. Check out their story HERE.
