Make Yourself Useful is a network of people committed to actively fortifying POC-led racial justice movements in Chicago and beyond. As people working to earn the chance to be accomplices in these struggles, we are initiating an experimental reading group, dedicated to lovingly holding each other and ourselves accountable in our quest to unlearn racism and confront white supremacy. We are also a mobilization body concentrated on the development of concrete ways to move up and move back, standing in direct and available solidarity with black and brown organizers. We are committed to making ourselves useful to the revolution for racial justice.

MYU is about to begin its 2nd year of monthly selected short readings, with concurrent meetings held in multiple neighborhoods in Chicago. It is free and open to the public. Most locations are accessable but check listings to be sure or contact us directly. If you would like to get involved:
