You know who we are: the city of big shoulders, 77 neighborhoods and miles of lakefront.

You also know that we’re more than that.

We are the city that works hard, and loves hard.

We are dreamers. We are actors. We make things happen.

We love our children, our blocks and our sides of town.

We believe in equity, fairness and opportunity.

We bind together to face challenges.

We don’t wait for someone else.

We get it done.

We have the power.
