UN35 is a neighbor-led group working to ensure that our local elected officials are accountable to our neighborhoods, not powerful special interests. United Neighbors of the 35th Ward (UN35) is a neighbor-led independent political organization working to ensure local families are engaged in government decision-making, and that our local elected officials are accountable to our neighborhoods, not powerful special interests. Founded on May 9, 2015 by volunteers and community leaders who had worked to elect Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, UN35 spent the summer of 2015 creating a vision our community that came from the residents of our community. UN35 engaged folks in the community in four visioning forums around a few key issue areas: Education, Public Safety, Budget/TIFs, and Community Driven Development. We engaged over 150 different people in these forums, knocked over 1,800 doors and talked to over 200 people! The visioning forums were a vehicle through which we could craft a positive vision to work towards, rather than be reactive to negative things happening in the ward and surrounding neighborhoods. To read UN35's platform, please visit: http://un35.org/our-vision/ Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, Chair Marcus Winn, Treasurer Marta Popadiak, Executive Director United Neighbors of the 35th Ward is an independent political organization dedicated to amplifying and representing the voice of families and residents of the communities in the ward. We act as a counterweight to entrenched political and business interests that for too long have operated without concern for the needs of the majority of Chicagoans.Activity status unknown.
