With your support, Chicago Foundation for Women will address the long-term impact of COVID-19 through SHEcovery™ A Roadmap to an Equitable Recovery. SHEcovery™ will invest in womxn and their families as they emerge from the immediate aftermath of COVID-19. CFW will support womxn as they regain their footing and advance toward a recovery that supports them by getting back to work, addressing housing needs, caring for caregivers, and demanding an antiracist healthcare system. CFW seeks to mobilize individuals, nonprofits, corporations, and legislators to work toward a recovery that is equitable, building stronger communities for all. With CFW’s close partnership, we will rebuild upon an even-stronger foundation, one that centers gender equity and racial justice in everything we do.
Thank you for joining us and for making a gift to secure the future of Chicago’s womxn and girls today.
