ACER focuses on empowering community members to engage with the civic process. We believe in the combined power of the people. We have the ability to come together and make our voices heard. Change is possible.
ACER advances economic development strategies with governments and community partners in order to generate homegrown wealth and close the wealth gap holding back BIPOC communities.
ACER makes safe, quality, and affordable housing a priority for the Northwest suburbs. We connect residents to critical housing resources and empower tenants to advocate for their right to fair housing.
