Economic Justice and Community Development

Southside Together Organizing for Power protest
Crossroads was and is one of the few funders who understands grassroots coalitions and organizing. They supported Metropolitan Tenants Organization to get the Chicago Tenants Bill of Rights passed in 1986.

From strengthening neighborhood schools, to fighting gentrification and advocating for affordable housing, Crossroads Fund grantees believe that Chicago truly can become the “City that Works.” We’re funding groups organizing seniors, homeless youth, public housing tenants, and parents, towards creating a city that is transparent, just, and accountable to all of its citizens.
