An Organization of Organizations
DuPage United is an inclusive, non-profit, non-partisan organization whose members are civil society institutions: churches, mosques, synagogues, non-profit agencies, and associations. This mix of institutions have come together to form public relationships and to act together to improve the quality of life for individuals, families and communities. DuPage United engages in democratic action in the public arena.
What DuPage United Believes
Democracy is not merely voting, but actively engaging in the public arena to solve challenges in our communities.
The "Iron Rule": Never do for others what they can do for themselves.
Leaders are NOT born, but made.
We believe in meeting face to face and developing the public relationships that are the glue of our society.
We believe in building power in order to have the capacity to act: power that is reciprocal, that is tempered by our values and traditions, and that includes more people in the dynamics of public life.
