This week we hear from an awesome incoming senior at Lane Tech College Prep about her work on the Mikva Challenge's Youth Safety Advisory Council. Then we find out how the Institute for Positive Living is making sure communities in Chicago are filling out the census. And we hear from Steven Krakow of the Chicago Reader as we profile the late great Chicago soul singer Bill Coday. The local music this week comes from Slightly Faded.

Get it!
For this week's Audio Magazine, we asked our performers to name an organization they'd like to highlight. We have those orgs listed below along with this episode's masthead. Please take some time to check them out and, if you're able, make a donation.
