Conversely, some people have never been further north than Madison Ave. Help us take back the narrative and make Chicago the most Interconnected City in the Country.

OUR LAST EVENT was covered by Fox News and DNA Info, and over 100 Chicagoans supported our movement of Interconnectivity. Saturday, May 28th help us double that number and Explore South Shore with MBMHMC.
