We will help you avoid common mistakes made by even some of the more established organizations by providing an overview of the responsibilities of nonprofits in recordkeeping and reporting.

We will help you avoid common mistakes made by even some of the more established organizations by providing an overview of the responsibilities of nonprofits in recordkeeping and reporting. We will also examine how this information may be used by funders, the community and Guidestar. When you complete this session you will have a better understanding of how to use publicly available information to better position your organization in the philanthropic marketplace. Workshops are $25.00 each in advance and $35.00 each at the door. A $100.00 investment can literally save your organization thousands of dollars on the back end.

  • Valerie F. Leonard Lawndale Community Builder and Policy Analyst

    Those of you who run nonprofits and are politically engaged could particularly benefit from the first workshop. Not only will we discuss record keeping, but we will share what activities are allowed and not allowed with respect to lobbying and political education.

Presidential Library

Now that our jewel of Black history and culture, Bronzeville has been eliminated from consideration for the Presidential Library, of the four remaining contenders, North Lawndale is the only one born and developed by the community.
North Lawndale, as a community, developed its own bid and then established a partnership with the world renowned University of Illinois.
There are “North Lawndales” across this country, from Hawaii to New York. In this contest, we represent them all.
What can you do to spread the word?

New Democratic Party

The new democratic party's primary objective this election season is to assist me and other potential candidates win elections in 2015. Now I'm planning an event next week to outline what the Chicago New Democratic party is, our benefits for participating in it, and the roles we can play in it.

The NDP is strongly pro-government, upbeat about the country's ability to solve problems and an individual's ability to get ahead through hard work, approve of regulation and environmental protection,...

The new democratic party's primary objective this election season is to assist me and other potential candidates win elections in 2015. Now I'm planning an event next week to outline what the Chicago New Democratic party is, our benefits for participating in it, and the roles we can play in it.

The NDP is strongly pro-government, upbeat about the country's ability to solve problems and an individual's ability to get ahead through hard work, approve of regulation and environmental protection, more positive about business than other Democratic-oriented groups, and generally liberal on racial issues

I have lots of information about my campaign, but it does not reflect the role of the Chicago New Democratic party, I opted on having two to three events exclusively about the Chicago New Democratic party next week (so you can view this as advertising).

Because the party hasn't officially started yet and I don't even know if I'll be one of its' officers... I stayed away from writing anything about the future political entity

Two plans and lots of similarities between the two

I came across an article in the Tribune called, "A new plan of Chicago: 12 ways to heal our city", and it very similar to my own plan for the 28th ward. I encourage everyone to read the article (Chicago Tribune, Sunday, September 21, 2014). There are few differences, but they have more similarities.

The new way

To vote for just any politician to remove a dislike political figure is dangerous; that is, we should maximize on our replacement. If you vote, you should be convinced that the replacement offers you the best return on your investments.

I am committed to establishing a true middle-class, I am committed to establishing a strong business community, and I'am committed to investing in a growth in home ownership.

To vote for just any politician to remove a dislike political figure is dangerous; that is, we should maximize on our replacement. If you vote, you should be convinced that the replacement offers you the best return on your investments.

I am committed to establishing a true middle-class, I am committed to establishing a strong business community, and I'am committed to investing in a growth in home ownership.

All the way up 'til now our local politicians has been anti-middle-class, anti-business, and anti-home ownership, to endorse these pursuits leads to competition and that's what they never wanted. But that is what we need, that is how we will grow. We must support the free market, this is a capitalist economy; therefore, we must participate in the capitalist economy.

Help me help us, this is the chance to get it right.

    Bother Harris,

    How do you propose to initiate and sustain your commitment to the middle-class. Oh yes, what is a middle-class? What is a free market? What bad politicians has (have) been anti-middle-class?

    Going public with your position can be dangerous insofar as exposing what you don't or do know...

    Bother Harris,

    How do you propose to initiate and sustain your commitment to the middle-class. Oh yes, what is a middle-class? What is a free market? What bad politicians has (have) been anti-middle-class?

    Going public with your position can be dangerous insofar as exposing what you don't or do know and possibly ain't got a clue.

    Explain to us, for the edification of our liberation and in one or two syllable words, what is a "capitalist economy.

    Give some examples of your vision and foundation to encourage genuine interest and potential participation in your ethos.

    See me, William, on YOUTUBE: "VACANT LOT PSYCHIC". Cleaning up our community will make it more "Investment Worthy".

    SEL

  • I watched your video and I found it very insightful. Thank you for sharing (this is much needed).

  • SIR SEL OF NORTH LAWNDALE AND BEYOND I'm a community filth and fear fighter

    Stay on it. Read, read and read, and pray for comprehension.
