Join the Chicagoland Equity Network Delegation to the PolicyLink Equity Summit 2018

  • Overview


The Chicagoland Equity Network is pleased to host a Chicagoland Equity Summit Delegation to together attend the PolicyLink Equity Summit 2018: Our Power. Our Future. Our Nation April 11-13, 2018 in Chicago and to use this to help catalyze advances in social justice locally. 

If you are already working on or interested in advancing equity in the Chicago region, we invite you to join our delegation of people from across sectors and disciplines working to for the cause of justice.

According the PolicyLink, the Equity Summit 2018 is:
A call to activists, organizers, and leaders to step into our power, activate our imaginations, and set the national agenda. That agenda will build on what’s been learned about advancing equity and justice and push to achieve the scale required for all to reach our full potential.

Collectively, we know what works. We recognize that the antidote to fear, hate, and twisted nostalgia is to dismantle structural racism, design systems of inclusion, and accept that our fates are intertwined… Read more.

Why join the Chicagoland Equity Summit Delegation?

  • All members of the Chicagoland Equity Summit Delegation will be able to utilize a reduced registration rate as part of our delegation
  • You may be able to utilize further reduced or free rate using funds raised by the Chicagoland Equity Network in collaboration with PolicyLink to support registrations from our delegation
  • Connect with other equity leaders locally and nationally—during the summit and beyond! We are working to bring together at least 300 Chicagoans as part of our delegation!
What does joining the delegation mean? By filling out this form to join the Chicagoland Equity Delegation, you are signing up to receive updates about when to register to attend the PolicyLink Equity Summit, should additional seats become available.  During registration for the delegation, please share your relative need for financial support to attend the summit to help delegation organizers to try to support your registration with funds that have been raised (one of the questions asks about this).  We will follow up with information about how to register with an appropriate discount code, based on the level of need you expressed and our ability to support your registration financially, using funds raised for this purpose.

Timeline: We will be providing updates as needed to those who have joined the delegation about fundraising progress, which will determine how many free and further reduced registrations can be afforded. 

To join the delegation, please register using the form here:  Register Now

***Due to high demand, PolicyLink is currently wait-listing registrants for the Equity Summit 2018. More seats might become available for the summit. More information can be found here: If you would like to be put onto PolicyLink's waitlist, please register on their website, as this is the best chance for being able to register and attend the summit.***

We ask that you still do join the Chicagoland Equity Network Delegation to hear updates from our group, including both the pre-summit event and post-summit follow-ups. We hope to be able to provide a registration code to new delegation members, if a seat becomes available for the summit.
Please note: We are in the process of raising funds to support the local delegation, and while some funds have been raised, having ample free and further reduced registrations are contingent upon raising the necessary funds. If you are a funder and would like to contribute to the delegation or the Chicagoland Equity network, please contact us here.
