The purpose of my research was to find how the Pilsen Neighbors Community Council (PNCC) and Teresa Fraga were able to affect change within the Pilsen neighborhood located in the near Southwest Side of Chicago. This paper outlines the issues that the PNCC worked to correct and the methods that they used. This research is primary source driven. Most documents were accessed through the Community Archives located at University of DePaul Library. Additional materials were found from the Chicago Tribune. The research resulted in an outline of the groups most successful methods: making the community aware and invested in solving an issue, connecting key stakeholders in the community, and becoming a part of the solution.
