My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Chicago Freedom School, Chicago, IL, USA
I came to know the Chicago Freedom School through my partner, who has been involved for several years. I've attended several public education events--all of them excellent--and also occasionally helped out. I know of no other organization that does such great work to improve the social understanding of political action, both in its history and in its practice. And in a time when public education is being transformed into a single, 12-year exercise in test preparation, CFS's work to help youth (and adults) think critically about the world is absolutely crucial.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
fantastic public education events.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand the budget. They do great work--it's a shame they can't do more of it.
