SOUL is a not for profit, grassroots, independent, multi-issue, power organization that addresses community issues on Chicago’s Southside and South Suburbs.
We are not for profit. We need money to organize but nobody is in this to get rich.
We are grassroots. If you are a person you can participate, you don’t have to be a big shot or have a fancy title to join in. And we are democratic. There is no one person or cabal that calls the shots at SOUL. Everyone has a voice because that is what community organizing is all about.
We are independent. We do not belong to anyone’s political organization or machine. We have no benefactor or patron. We are not beholden to anyone. We stand together and for the people.
We are multi-issue. We don’t just work on one issue because there are many issues affecting our community. Our issues come out of the concerns and needs of our members and communities.
We are leadership centered and we are devoted to leadership training and development. We train community leaders to become stronger leaders and help improve the conditions of their communities.
To learn more about what we do, please attend a leaders meeting, held 7 PM on the fourth Monday of every month at First Presbyterian Church, 6400 S Kimbark Ave. Together we can evoke change and improve the standard of living in the Southland communities of Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
