SCENE Chicago Discovers the UniteChicago Movement
UniteChicago’s launch party is still fresh in people’s memory. For those who made it, Zed451 was happy to be the starting point for a growing movement to unite Chicago. What does a United Chicago mean? To the founders of UniteChicago it means championing the values of community – Togetherness, Acceptance, and Opportunity! These are virtuous ideals everyone in the city can support.
They will be hosting events on a monthly basis. Every month, the co-founders Noah and Anthony are encouraging people to go out and do their business, go to their friend’s networking events, and then on the last Saturday of the month, come unite the city of Chicago! Their Saturday Social is an opportunity to come together with leaders and communities from around the city to talk about the issues they’re facing, share ideas, collaborate, and build positive reputations with each other. This is exciting stuff! (Noah emphasizes that this is a social event, not a formal roundtable).
“UniteChicago is an opportunity for the city to come together and have the realization that we are all living here in the present moment with each other. I want to give people the chance to feel like they are connected with the people around them because we all share the moment and we all share this great city.”, says Noah. He goes on to talk about why their end of the month pow wow is so important for Chicago’s community, “It’s the best real opportunity to connect with other leaders to see what they see and find out how everyone can help each other.” We wonder what could truly become of the UniteChicago movement. Is this the spark that leads to unification in our city? Across ethnic, professional, and creative boundaries? We wonder what exactly they have started. Is the SCENE ready for it?
