Take Back Chicago Welcome to the Take Back Chicago Research Group. This is a group for individuals and organizations to come together and do strategic research to learn about the power structure that moves the corporate agenda in our city. Whether you're investigating the businesspeople in Rahm Emanuel's downtown inner circle or the local charters and developers giving money to your alderman, this is the place to do the research, share the findings, and build the movement.

When you find something noteworthy about any aspect of the power structure, you should share it with the group in this Notes section. Just start your note with Take Back Chicago and then tell us what you find. We will update the 'Findings' section regularly with our discoveries.
