Advocating for disenfranchised communities strengthening their voices since 2017
Headquartered in the city of Chicago, the Unconventional Coalition represents a diverse group of people seeking to make systemic changes in our homes, communities, and environments. We focus on the many issues that unite us; while respectfully disagreeing on the few differences that divide us.
Our team have been working to empower and support Chicago’s disenfranchised neighborhoods through civic engagement, education, community development and outreach. We envision a world where communities can find support and resources to strengthen their voices and take on the issues most relevant to them.

Areas of Practice
Our coalition is as politically influential as the American Legislative Exchange Council at its peak. Seeking to address member needs by creating legislative bill, crafting bureaucratic procedures, filling court cases, drafting executive orders, petitioning ballot initiatives, and developing international treaties.
It is important to mimic the outreach abilities of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)during its peak. The organization was a collection of community-based organizations in the United States and internationally that advocated for low- and moderate-income families by working on neighborhood safety, voter registration, health care, affordable housing, and other social issues. At its peak ACORN had over 500,000 members and more than 1,200 neighborhood chapters in over 100 cities across the U.S., as well as in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, and Peru. ACORN was founded in 1970 by Wade Rathke and Gary Delgado.
We are obligated to support the youth of the world in their time of need, and work towards a greater good. We understand the importance of educating the youth of our future. It is important to help them obtain an education which will give them the knowledge and skills necessary for improving their lives and their communities.
We need a research environment that rivals that of the ivy league system. Ivy League universities have some of the largest university financial endowments in the world, which allows the universities to provide many resources for their academic programs and research endeavors. Additionally, each university receives millions of dollars in research grants and other subsidies from federal and state governments.
Access member needs, calculate community needs and evaluate environmental concerns with the use of surveys, polls, relationship building and other research tools.
Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, we work to help all people lead healthy and productive lives. In developing communities, we focus on improving people's quality of life and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of extreme poverty. We want to ensure that all people and especially those with the fewest resources, have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in life.
After years of discussion and dialogue, we have a diverse group of people seeking to make systemic changes in our homes, our communities, and our environments. But let's be clear. This campaign is not about us. It's about a grassroots movement of Americans helping communities to find support and resources to strengthen their voices and take on the issues most relevant to them.
This country and our government belong to all of us.
