Preservation Chicago is a small, grassroots advocacy non-profit. Due to our small size, our Board and volunteers play an important role in helping to further our mission.
Ways to get involved include:
- Speak Out on Social Media: Actively promote and forward preservation oriented social media posts. The more people who know about a threatened historic building, the more likely it is that a campaign to save it will be successful.
- Become a Neighborhood Preservation Leader: Chicago is a city of neighborhoods and the best defense for historic buildings is from within the neighborhood. The earlier you hear about a threatened building, the more likely an effort will be to save it. Organize others within the neighborhood who share a passion for preservation. Preservation Chicago works with many neighborhood organizations throughout the city and has found it to be one of the most important factors in successful outcomes.
- Be in touch! Call, email, or come to one of our events. We are always looking to meet other preservationists.
