Posted: Thursday Sep 24, 2015

Economic issues, social inclusion, education and public safety are among the problems most important to residents of the Chicago region, according to newly released data from the Chicago Community Trust.

Compiled and analyzed by the Institute for Policy and Civic Engagement, the data was generated by conversations held as part of the On the Table 2015 initiative.

Now in its second year, the program aims to bring Chicagoans from all walks of life together for lunchtime conversations about how best to address the problems facing the regions.

This year’s results present a significant opportunity for collaboration and action. Read more about them at onthetablereport.com
