This year’s theme—Building on Promise—speaks to the hope we have for our city; the promise and potential each of us has to make a difference; SGA’s commitment to finding innovative ways that create lasting change; and our commitment to engaging others so we can increase SGA’s reach and can break the cycle of poverty and adversity faced by so many children and families in Chicago.
