The CivicLab is a "do tank" dedicated to accelerating grassroots democracy, civic engagement and social justice efforts and to prepare social justice champions to fight for change. We operate the CivicLab, The TIF Illumination Project, The "Chicago Is Not Broke Project," and The POWER Institute. Our work has directly touched over 10,000 people since 2013. We've been invited to present at over 130 public meetings across the city. We have succeeded in expanding Chicago's civic imagination to make a better city possible.
Please invest in democracy today!
