Thank you to everyone who joined us for Acts of Change! It was so joyful to be together with more than 350 of you — our beloved members, friends, family, and partners — as we recognized the leadership of Gerry & Steve Keen and Brother Mike Eldridge, and celebrated the collective impact of our JCUA community.

Throughout the night, we explored JCUA’s history of housing justice organizing. We spotlighted our Community Ventures Program (CVP), the Bring Chicago Home (BCH) campaign, and heard the story of an exceptional JCUA youth organizer Dalya Lessem Elnecave. Check out the full video!

With all of your generous support, we were thrilled to raise $382,000 for JCUA. We look forward to a fantastic summer full of organizing for social change and building community with you all.
