Chicago United for Equity began as a response to national and local reporting of modern-day school segregation. After Nikole Hannah-Jones sparked a national conversation on school segregation, an early form of CUE brought Chicagoans together to hear their experiences with segregated and integrated schools in a house meeting.
As we look to the future, we are focused on promoting racial justice in our schools and communities by:
- Building and sharing key tools for equity,
- Connecting residents, activists, researchers, lawyers, and policymakers who promote racial justice, and
- Transforming policies to bridge our city’s divides.
Come join CUE as an intern working to end racial inequities in Chicago. As a small start-up organization, we look at our interns as true partners on our team. We work with paid internship programs at colleges, universities, and other professional programs to ensure that all team members are compensated.
