Chicago’s Pullman District: Our Next National Park?

The famous and historic Pullman community of Chicago may receive federal National Park status within the next two years. Join Chicagoan Lynn McClure of the National Parks Conservation Association (Chicago regional office) as she explains why Pullman is so significant, what recent developments have led to its consideration for National Park honors, and how the AIA Chicago community can help chart a path for Pullman’s future.

Bring your lunch; beverages provided.

NPCA plays a crucial role in ensuring that National Parks and historic sites are protected in perpetuity:

      advocate for the national parks and the National Park Service;

      educate decision makers and the public about the importance of preserving the parks;

      help to convince members of Congress to uphold the laws that protect the parks and to support new legislation to address threats to the parks;

      fight attempts to weaken these laws in the courts;

      assess the health of the parks and park management to better inform advocacy work.
