We Rise Together

For an Equitable and Just Recovery

Nowhere are economic effects of the pandemic felt worse than in the Chicago region’s Black and Latinx communities. Building on the momentum of the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund, The Chicago Community Trust an unprecedented coalition of government, business, philanthropy, nonprofits, and community leaders to bring about a truly equitable economic recovery. Lipman Hearne partnered with The Trust to create the foundational communications for the multi-year effort.

To meet the deadline for a public launch that coincided with the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire, Lipman Hearne developed a name for the initiative, and developed a logo, core messaging, a donor pitch deck, and landing page—all in six weeks. We also created templated social media tiles that the initiative’s partners could use as they came on board.
