Repair the World Chicago is so grateful to partner with My Block My Hood My City.
By Ernesto Gonzalez Marketing Manager/Media Relations at My Block My Hood My City
My Block My Hood My City’s motto is ‘Taking Care of People, No Matter What.’ This phrase keeps us motivated and guided in all the work that we do. Whether it’s showcasing different opportunities to youth or working with neighborhoods in the south and west side, our mission is to inspire youth, empower communities and to build a better world, one block at a time. The city of Chicago is one of the most resilient and hard working cities in the world. Since the beginning, we’ve realized that our biggest strength has been showing up for those who need us most. You’ll see the organization and our amazing volunteers respond to the immediate needs of the world. We’re motivated by the trust of the youth and communities and we’ll continue to serve them and more!

This #BlackHistoryMonth Repair the World is highlighting Black-led orgs, service partners who are advancing and centering Diversity Equity and Inclusion work and prioritizing BIPOC leadership in their orgs, and Black Community Leaders that we serve with across our communities. Our impact would not be possible without them. Our Jewish values of solidarity, achdoot, and strengthening each other, hitchazkut, remind us that nothing is possible without meaningful relationships. Our partners and colleagues are critical to our ability to understand and act thoughtfully. When we lift up, celebrate, and appreciate others, we ultimately work towards a stronger outcome.
