Explore upcoming events and opportunities to engage with We Will Chicago.


Thursday, April 29 | 12 pm - 1:30 pm

Get informed, inspired and involved with the future of the We Will Chicago plan. The three-year citywide planning initiative prioritizes equity, resiliency and engagement in order to create an inclusive vision for Chicago. Hear first-hand about the power of joining together to collectively identify, address, and plan for current and future challenges and opportunities.

The event, scheduled for Thursday, April 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m., will include an informative and energizing update on the ‘We Will Chicago’ planning process to create an inclusive vision for vibrancy across all of Chicago. Join leaders from the Mayor’s Office, City departments, and The Chicago Community Trust, as they reflect on what was learned from the pre-planning phase, highlight its key outcomes and findings, and set a foundation for the upcoming phases and next steps.

The forum will feature a presentation by City leaders as well as a moderated Q&A from community stakeholders. This virtual panel provides the opportunity to ask questions and hear directly from the leaders organizing, coordinating, and supporting the first citywide plan in more than 50 years.

Who Will Lead the Future of Chicago? We will. And we hope you will, too.
