For 27 years, The Institute for Community Empowerment (ICE) has taught the residents of Chicago the skills of community organizing to ensure that they can participate fully in addressing the issues that matter most in their communities and their lives.

ICE believes that all residents in a democracy have the capability and right to Initiate change, Combat injustice, and Empower themselves and their communities.
