OUR MEMBERSHIP IN ACTION
Enlace Chicago

Each month, Forefront proudly spotlights a Member which is leading impact for the sector and in its community. For August, we bring to the forefront Enlace Chicago, based in and focused on the community of Little Village in Chicago. Enlace’s mission is to “convene, organize, and build the capacity of Little Village stakeholders to confront systemic inequities and barriers to economic and social access.” That mission resonates with Forefront’s daily work convening, coordinating, and building capacity for organizations across the social impact sector in Illinois. And, Enlace is more than a Member. As an IL Count Me In Funders’ Collaborative Grantee, the organization also works closely with us on ensuring a fair and equitable 2020 Census.
