CAC operates through the use of community lawyers who protect the public’s assets and promote meaningful participation in the democratic process. As an institution comprised of community lawyers, CAC engages in a holistic approach to building democracy through community organizing, coalition building, legal advocacy, civic education, and litigation to make government more accountable, accessible, and transparent.

CAC seeks to increase democratic protocols at every level of government and develop the voice of the public. Efforts that start at the local level often result in statewide initiatives to address anti-democratic barriers rooted in state law.

CAC is located in downtown Elmhurst, Illinois and is open for the public to:
