Racial Justice Resources

YNPN works to enhance the vibrancy of the Chicago nonprofit community, and condemns systemic racism and oppression. We must all work towards an anti-racist future, addressing the systemic issues and internalized racism that are inside us and surround us. As one part of this, we want to share the organizations doing this work in Chicago, and uplift their powerful and vital missions.

Be safe. Be kind to one another. Black Lives Matter.
