ASE is the only organization dedicated specifically to building community strength and advocating for change on Chicago’s southeast side.
As a coalition of organizations and leaders, with a tiny staff and a committed group of volunteers, our strength comes entirely from our members. If you want to join this critical work – to make jobs not jails the pathway for our youth leaders; to make our schools and neighborhoods safer during an epidemic of gun violence; to fight for real economic justice with a true multicultural coalition — join ASE today.
Yes! I stand with ASE and Chicago’s southeast side!
