We've come a long way since November 8, 2016 and women are more motivated and engaged than ever before!
Please join us on November 8th to celebrate the launch of Cause the Effect Chicago (formerly Off the Sidelines Chicago) and the progress we've made as a community over the last year.
We are so excited to grow our platform to support the next generation of women leaders in Chicago, including those running for office. We are investing in building community and removing barriers to civic engagement by giving women the resources and support they need to effect change in communities across Chicago.
