IRRPP State of Racial Justice in Chicago Report


The State of Racial Justice in Chicago Report provides a comprehensive picture of the changing conditions of racial and ethnic groups in Chicago during the last half century. The report offers accessible data and analysis on how racial and ethnic groups in Chicago are faring in relation to housing, education, economics, health, justice, and services. In keeping with IRRPP’s commitment to knowledge in the service of transformation, the scope and depth of the analysis increases awareness, attention, and discussion about Chicago’s racial and ethnic disparities and their intersecting dynamics. The report also highlights gaps in the data and the challenges posed by the use of standard measures to assess racial dynamics. The report’s accessible data and analysis are meant to amplify its use and relevance for researchers, policy makers, and community organizers.
