Community Organizing and Family Issues (COFI)
1436 West Randolph, 4th Floor, Chicago, Illinois 60607
Our mission is to strengthen the power and voice of low-income and working families at all levels of civic life—from local institutions and communities to the local, state, and federal policy arenas.
In 1995, COFI founded with a Sponsoring Committee of 18 prominent and visionary leaders – including former community organizer President Barack Obama! Training expanded to different communities between 1997 and 1999, and in 2001 parents won commitment from Chicago Public Schools CEO Arne Duncan to Support 100 Community Schools.
