Go Green on Racine Launch Ceremony

The Go Green on Racine Chicago Prize Finalist team is set to compete with five other finalists for $10 million! “Go Green” is a partnership between Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN), Teamwork Englewood, Resident Association of Greater Englewood (R.A.G.E) and E.G. Woode. Check out our recent interview on WBEZ here.

Join us for a special celebration at 1207 W. 63rd St. on Thursday, February 27th at Noon as we officially begin construction on the Go Green Fresh Market*– the first phase of Go Green On Racine: An Englewood Rising Project.

Go Green on Racine: An Englewood Rising Project is a cutting-edge initiative to develop a thriving green node in the heart of Englewood by, with and for residents, and aligned with Englewood Quality of Life plans. Located around the 63rd & Racine intersection that connects Englewood and West Englewood zip codes 60621 and 60636, strategically close to the 63rd Street bus corridor and the closed Racine Green-Line station, it will introduce three capital assets: a Fresh Market Co-operative; a mixed-use housing, retail, and community development; and a hyper-local recycling enterprise re-purposing the vacant Woods Academy.
