LAC Action Assembly

Sunday, May 6, 2012


St. Paul's UCC Church

(Fullerton & Orchard in Lincoln Park)

Join in LAC's biggest membership meeting as we come together to celebrate our victories and advance our issue campaign work. We can't do it without you!

To participate in the planning process, join us at our community council meeting on March 8, 2012, 7-8:30pm, at Anshe Emet (3751 N. Broadway).





The Lakeview Action Coalition (LAC) is a non-profit, multi-issue community organization. The Coalition is comprised of 48 institutional members, including religious congregations, non-profit agencies, banks, business associations, a credit union and a senior citizens caucus. These diverse institutions are stakeholders in the Chicago communities of Lakeview, Lincoln Park and North Center. 

LAC enables its members to act on their values in public life by participating in the decisions that shape our community's future. We fulfill this mission by organizing people around issues affecting our members and by developing leaders through training, action and reflection. Since our founding in 1993, we have fought for justice, solidarity and diversity.

LAC is funded by its member institutions, foundations and other donors and by earned income. Members pay substantial dues in order to provide local, independent funding.

Recognizing that Lakeview is part of a larger city and region, LAC was a founding member of United Power for Action and Justice in 1997, a coalition of organizations across metropolitan Chicago. In 2009, LAC affiliated with National People's Action, a coalition of grassroots organizations across the country.
