State of NLC Chicago Preview Event


Thank you for the tremendous response as we are at capacity for this event.

October 20, 2016
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
320 N. Morgan St.

New Leaders Council Chicago trains the next generation of progressive leaders to take on the biggest challenges facing our communities. Join us for an evening at Google Chicago to see what we’re all about.

Did you know transportation access is the single biggest barrier to pathways out of poverty? Or that the transportation sector recently surpassed power plants as the largest source of carbon emissions in the U.S.?

Join New Leaders Council Chicago for an evening of conversation about the critical role transportation plays across many intertwined issues. Our diverse set of speakers will discuss what tools we have, such as new technologies, to address equity and sustainability challenges in Chicago, and how policymakers can help drive positive change for all.

This event is free.
