The Burnham Plan Centennial - Bold Plans, Big Dreams

Program Partners


Jane Addams Hull House Association is the direct descendent of the settlement house founded by Jane Addams in 1889. In the words of our founder, our purpose is to “Aid in the solutions of life in a great city, to help our neighbors build responsible, self-sufficient lives for themselves and their families.” We carry on this mission today as one of Chicago’s oldest and largest social and human service agencies by providing creative, innovative programs and advocating for related public policy reforms.

Jane Addams Symposium

Jane Addams Hull House Association

This breakfast workshop is the first of four Jane Addams symposia to take place over the next year. Janice Metzger, author of What Would Jane Say? City-Building Women and a Tale of Two Chicagos, will lead a candid discussion on how Chicago might be a different city today if Jane Addams and other leading women had been a part of the Burnham planning process. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with Ms. Metzger and to purchase an autographed copy of the book.
