We believe silence is complicity.
In the current atmosphere of bold discrimination against Muslim, transgender, gay, hispanic and immigrant members of our community, Chicago Academic would like to take a firm stand on the side of acceptance and tolerance.
We are proud that our great many tutors, as well as clients, represent the rich tapestry of identities, cultures and religions in our community. Chicago is a great city primarily because of our many groups and their myriad contributions.
We believe in the quality of character as opposed to stereotypical labels. Black lives do matter; love whomever and however you like; be any gender that makes you who you truly are; pray to any god you like or to no god at all. You are all welcome in our doors.
Education is the single best way to combat the dark, ugly discrimination being promoted at the highest level. In our small way, within this noble community of schools, educational organizations and companies, without teaching our values, we will make sure that we model our values.
We remember the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now."
