Engaging in meaningful action and discussion for positive social change in our community.
Skokie United was started in January 2016. After months of discussions about implement something for our community, we came together and started our movement. We started with Unity Coffees. These events where created to meet members of the community and have discussions about living, working, worshiping, and playing in Skokie.
