Upswell Chicago

November 13, 2019 - November 15, 2019

Upswell Chicago

What can the heartland teach us about local approaches to national problems? This November 13-15, the Windy City will become the Wave City as thousands of changemakers gather for Upswell 2019. We hope you’ll be among them.

Long before you land at O’Hare or Midway for three eye-opening days, we’re busy putting down roots in our host city. From the biggest funders to the most hyper-local organizers, we’re connecting a constellation of changemakers from all over Chicago to elevate the best solutions the city has to offer. Whatever your mission and wherever you call home, you’ll leave here challenged, encouraged, and changed.
