The city of Chicago has a population of 1.5 million Hispanics spread out among many barrios.
The campus will help alleviate the problems of overcrowding in schools that disproportionately affect Hispanic communities in Chicago. The group formed UNO, the United Neighborhood Organization.
UNO worked within Chicago's Hispanic neighborhoods by collaborating with parishes in working-class neighborhoods like South Chicago, Little Village and Back of the Yards.
Because we understand the vision and aspirations of our community, we have continuously positioned ourselves at the forefront of cutting-edge issues, and delivered real results through a combination of neighborhood base-building and pragmatic power politics.
In 2004, UNO became involved in education advocacy and established the UNO Charter School Network.
The guiding philosophy at the UNO Charter Schools is effective management is as essential to education as curriculum and pedagogy.

For two decades, we have been challenging Hispanics to play active roles in the development of a vital American community.
