Chicago United for Equity (CUE)

Civics Course

Grade Levels: 9-12

CUE is a community of racial justice advocates working together across neighborhoods, organizations, and policy issues. We're organizing, shaping narratives, leading advocacy, and reforming institutions to build the city we deserve. Our network connects across our Fellowship program, neighborhood & school reform efforts, and community events.

CUE has participated in PD for civics teachers and CUE's resources have been a valuable addition to Districtwide guidance on civic topics (i.e. candidate surveys, etc).
