Lakeview Action Coalition
The Lakeview Action Coalition (LAC) is a multi-issue community organization acting to sustain racial and economic diversity in the rapidly gentrifying Chicago communities of Lakeview and North Center. The Coalition organizes issue campaigns and develops leaders through training, action, and reflection. LAC has 39 member organizations including large religious congregations, nonprofit agencies, banks, a senior citizen’s caucus, and a Section 8 tenants’ union. LAC has operated primarily through its issue task forces: affordable housing, affordable healthcare, and youth. Each task force coordinates research, relationship building, issue development, and action.
