Join NA4J and Uplift H.S. students, parents, teachers, and community members to demand that Uplift be designated as the community school for the Uptown neighborhood.

We are going to the CPS Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, November 19 at 4:30pm at Westinghouse H.S., 3223 W Franklin Blvd. We want Uplift to be available to all Uptown students and NOT be merged or phased out. This is part of a broader struggle for sustainable school transformation.

Need a ride? We will have transportation leaving from Uplift (900 W Wilson) at 3:30pm. Email if you plan to join us and need a ride.


We collected nearly 1200 signatures for the Elected School Board referendum on Election Day! Thanks to all of our volunteers who helped get signatures...and thank you for signing.

We still need hundreds more signatures to get it on the February 2015 ballot. Can you help out?

Thank you to everyone that attended our Annual Awards Dinner!

In case you missed it, please consider making a donation to support Northside Action for Justice. Thank you!

We are excited to announce that we are initiating a unique housing program called the Tenant Housing Resource Action Team (THREAT). This campaign will educate, inform, and support tenants who are struggling to live in affordable housing with decent conditions. THREAT will provide intake hours for tenants to gain information on their rights and what they can do. Additionally, THREAT will identify buildings that are in danger of being shut down or “flipped” and will work with tenants who are ready to organize their neighbors.
Contact us at if you are interested in volunteering.
