Jane Addams Senior Caucus is a multiracial, grassroots organization led by concerned seniors in the Chicago metropolitan area. We cross neighborhood, racial, religious and socio-economic lines to find common ground upon which to act on our values. Through leadership development, organizing and popular education, we use the power of our collective voice to work for economic, social and racial justice for all seniors and our communities.
Jane Addams Senior Caucus has about 500 members from diverse background fighting for social justice. We know that seniors are valuable to our community and that seniors coming together can improve their lives and be active in civic life.
The issues we work on come from the concerns of our members. Presently our issues include the preservation and creation of affordable housing, improving in-home health care and ensuring on-site social workers in senior buildings.
