As bell hooks teaches us, “one of the most vital ways we sustain ourselves is by building communities of resistance, places where we know we are not alone.” That’s what we are cultivating at CUE. When the work and world begin to feel heavy, our growing community is a space to reimagine systems, vision together, and develop new ways of moving our city forward.


CUE is a reflective learning community that believes our best learning happens through the pairing of relationships and action. Each year, we convene Fellows across identities, neighborhoods, and sectors for a nine-month Fellowship program to find their thought partners, learn how to leverage their roles in our civic ecosystem, and develop new practices to help them grow in their leadership in alignment with community.

2023 CUE Fellowship

Each year, CUE teams use art, dialogue, research, and popular education to connect Chicago's stories, work together to build policy, and make our city more accountable to our people. Moreover, we are cultivating a community of changemakers who are able to collaborate and connect their piece of the puzzle with those of their peers to build this vision together.
