Elevate is 20 in 2020! 

Join us at Elevate Together, a free virtual event open to all on Tuesday, December 8 from 12 to 1 p.m. CST. Tune in at 11:45 a.m. for our lobby; the show will start at noon. 

We will look back on our past 20 years of impact and share exciting new announcements for Elevate’s future. Steve Bynum of WBEZ will lead us through an exploration of Elevate then, now, and next, and we'll give a special thank you to Elevate's founding CEO Kathy Tholin. 

The event will honor our Climate Changemakers, eight phenomenal community leaders who bring their visions for environmental justice, equity, and climate solutions to life.

Please consider supporting Elevate by making a contribution, or by sponsoring Elevate Together. We believe in collaboration, equity, innovation, and raising the authentic stories of the people we serve. Your support will help us bring equitable climate solutions to those who need them most.
