Go deep: Three webinars on the issues driving Chicago

It’s election season here in Chicago. And this year, the city’s ballot features an unprecedented number of aldermanic candidates. These municipal elections are not only an opportunity to change the face of Chicago’s wards, but of the city as a whole.

Crumbling infrastructure. Racism. Gentrification. The next City Council will have their work cut out for them.

To equip these candidates with the facts they need to tackle these issues, the Metropolitan Planning Council hosted a webinar series on the systemic trends, changes, and upcoming issues facing the city. 

And because this information is also relevant to those who aren’t running for office, we wanted to share these webinars widely. Please listen below.
