UBUNTU Center of Chicago – The Center for SGL-LGBT African Americans, a Chicago non-profit business, was founded in 2013. The Center aim is to continue to implement SGL-LGBT affirming programs, services, projects and special events; and to partner with other social justice organizations and allies with similar beliefs. In 2015 The Center of Chicago will open and provide the SGL-LGBT and allied community a safe space in Chicago to discuss, learn and offer support to one another.

Mission:

The mission of the UBUNTU Center of Chicago is to develop and implement programs, services and build capacity to improve the quality of life of SGL-LGBT persons of African descent in Chicago.





Vision:  
The UBUNTU Center of Chicago envisions a world where Men and Women of African descent within the SGL-LGBT community are empowered as individuals, as citizens and as part of the larger community, enjoying non-prejudicial treatment under the law and in every aspect of their lives. We will encourage the creation of a society that celebrates the inherent worth, dignity, contributions, history and diverse characteristics of every same gender loving individual.

Goal:

The Ubuntu Center of Chicago will be a leader in Chicago for the collaboration of the SGL-LGBT community and allied groups, the media, and policy makers; a resource and service center for all persons and organizations who share our vision; and a place of historical documenting and education.
