A Framework for a Stronger Bronzeville

  • The Network has created a framework that includes a comprehensive community action plan that focuses on four areas: violence prevention, trauma-informed care, education, and workforce development.
  • Bronzeville is committed to bringing all necessary partners to the table—schools, social service agencies, faith community leaders, businesses, law enforcement, and political officials—to address the community’s biggest challenges through the multi-pronged approach by the year 2027.

Coalition Highlights

  • As a major component of their work force development program, Bronzeville launched the Access United initiative in conjunction with the Chicago Federation of Labor to identify residents who want to work in the construction trades.
  • The Network developed the Greater
    Bronzeville Community Action Plan handbook as an engagement framework aligning new and existing partners around the Network’s bold goals.
