Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA) is a multi-issue community organization, directly serving more than 6,500 residents in Chicago’s Logan Square, Avondale, and Hermosa neighborhoods, and impacting tens of thousands more through nationally-recognized issue campaigns and programs. With this award, the Logan Square Neighborhood Association convenes a series of strategy and education sessions to inform its communities on shifts in federal immigration law and policy. From these meetings, LSNA creates a coordinated network of local businesses, faith-based institutions, social service agencies, and schools to serve as a hub for information and resources to protect immigrants, refugees, and those who may be subject to religious or ethnic persecution. This network also builds a web of safe neighborhood spaces for immigrant and refugee communities in the Logan Square, Avondale, and Hermosa neighborhoods.
