Celebrate Our 5th Birthday in Style

Five years ago, Action Now Institute (ANI) was founded in 2010, as a sister organization to Action Now (AN). Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower residents of Illinois’ low-and moderate-income communities to take a public stance on the issues that affect their neighborhoods, city and state. Some of our wins include:

  • We led the Raise Chicago Coalition to increase the city's minimum wage. As a result of our hard work, a $13 minimum wage, which includes domestic workers, was established to be implemented over the course of five years.

  • Between January 2014 and July 2015, ANI engaged 510 homeowners and 211 renters living in properties that were in foreclosure through the Cook County Mediation Program.

  • In 2014 we registered 19,222 voters and engaged 7,282 people around community issues.

  • ANI supported the Grow Your Own Teachers program, which combats institutional racism in public schools. 

On October 15, 2015, Action Now Institute will celebrate our 5th Anniversary by hosting a Birthday Celebration.  It will be a fun-filled event to celebrate this milestone and to acknowledge those who have been with us in the trenches from the beginning.
