About Organizing Neighborhoods for Equality: Northside (ONE Northside)
Organizing Neighborhoods for Equality: Northside (ONE Northside) is a community organization resulting from the merger of Lakeview Action Coalition and Organization of the Northeast. Together, ONE and LAC have a history of nearly 60 years of powerful and effective community organizing. ONE Northside started on July 1, 2013. ONE Northside organizes people from over 100 institutions, as well as individual community residents, from Rogers Park, Edgewater, Uptown, Ravenswood, North Center, Lake View, and Lincoln Park. ONE Northside Mission: Organizing Neighborhoods for Equality: Northside is a mixed-income, multi-ethnic, intergenerational organization that unites our diverse communities. We build collective power to eliminate injustice through bold and innovative community organizing. We accomplish this through developing grassroots leaders and acting together to effect change.
ONE Northside works closely with ONE People’s Campaign. ONE People’s Campaign is committed to winning racial, gender and economic justice by dismantling systems of oppression. As people directly affected by the issues, we accomplish this through year-round community engagement, advancing progressive policies, and building governing power across Illinois. We envision a society in which all voices are heard and government serves the interests of the people and the planet, so that communities thrive and every person lives with joy and dignity.
