Community Activist Groups

    God bless you for your smart decision to purchase property in the Washington Park quardrants of Bronzeville. 47th Street north and east of Cottage Grove down to 18th Street along the lakefront, is also within the geographic boundaries of Bronzeville!!!

    Hi! we have an active Block Club that covers the area on 51st from King Drive to State St. We have a spring clean up in April and last Labor day we had a Block Party on 51st and Calumet. We're also in the process of planning a mural on 51st and Calumet.
    If you are available on Feb 2nd, some of us are gathering to discuss community violence around 6pm at the Jerk Shack on 51st and Prairie. We'd love for you to join.
    Please see our facebook page "Friends of 51st" or you can email me for more info.
