About Us

The United Congress of Community and Religious Organizations is a grassroots-led multiethnic human rights alliance mobilizing people, policy and ideals to drive societal transformation and forge unity for the equitable advancement of marginalized communities. We believe that all Illinoisans have the right to be healthy, wealthy, safe, educated and employed regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, age, income or citizenship status. Illinois’ immigrant families and communities of color have been divided, disinvested and destroyed through inhumane and inequitable policies and practices. We call on Illinois’ elected officials and community leaders to join the United Congress in its commitment to proactively address the state’s growing racial disparities and ensure equity and justice for all.
