Strategic Plan

The Board of Legal Action Chicago adopted a three-year strategic plan that went into place as the organization’s operations began in January 2021. Under the plan, Legal Action in general will undertake matters that are within the joint mission of Legal Action Chicago and Legal Aid Chicago and that meet at least the following priority criteria:

  1. The potential outcome of a matter, if successful, will justify the expenditure of resources devoted to it.

  2. Legal Action’s involvement is a value-add and not duplicative of work already in progress by other organizations with similar missions.

  3. The work answers a demonstrated community need.

  4. The work reflects a strategic priority for racial justice/racial equity.
