Mission Statement

UNO leads the transformation of the Hispanic community toward an educated, powerful and prosperous citizenry by engaging and challenging it to redefine its potential and its legacy in metropolitan Chicago and The United States of America.

Description

UNO is a 501(c) (3) community group established in 1984 to empower Chicago Hispanics through classic grassroots organizing strategies. Over time and through its strategic successes, UNO’s outlook toward Hispanic immigrant empowerment evolved into a more sophisticated and centrist philosophy.

Since its founding in Chicago, UNO has refined its mission by choosing to honor the Hispanic community’s roots and values, challenging it to reach its full potential via efforts to promote Hispanic assimilation. UNO believes the Hispanic community is similar to its Irish, German, and Polish counterparts, among others. As with these immigrant groups, Hispanics have come to the United States to benefit from American opportunity by working hard to create better lives for their families. Representing an historic wave of immigration to the United States, Hispanics are the newest incarnation of that American tradition.
