A Message to the NLEN Community


To the NLEN Community,


Yesterday evening, our building security team was alerted of a potential threat to our Homan Ave. office location. The validity of this threat could not be confirmed or denied in the short time since received, so in the abundance of concern and care – we are closing the offices today, Friday, August 19th. The North Lawndale branch of Wintrust Bank Chicago will be closed today as well.


We take the protection of our staff, clients, customers, partners and all visitors very seriously; and we regret any inconvenience that this matter may have caused you.


Our beelove café will resume regular hours from 8AM to 2PM on Saturday, August 20th, and our Walking Tour with Metropolitan Planning Council and Equiticity will go on as scheduled. We will have staff on hand to ensure that people can enjoy our scheduled weekend activities with safety as our utmost priority.


Should you have any question, please contact NLEN's Chief Operating Officer, Clarence Carson, at clarence@nlen.org.


Thank you for your understanding as we ensure our campus remains a safe space for all who come through our doors.
