Greater Lawndale Lotería
An evidence-informed, historically grounded, and worker justice-themed educational game
Greater Lawndale Lotería was developed through a collaborative effort between community partners in Greater Lawndale and UIC. Our game features:
- 54 originally illustrated cards by Ronica Hicks, a North Lawndale artist, that reflect common jobs and places where people work in GL as well as neighborhood landmarks.
- Educational narratives co-authored by Alison Dickson and GLHW Team for each card that highlights assets, precarity levels, history about Chicago labor movements, and know your rights information.
- An instructional and informational booklet graphically designed by Theodora Salazar, a Little Village resident.

Card preview Heading link
I learned about the rise in interest in trade schools and how they are very underfunded despite the demand.
We need more healthy work so we can buy food.
I felt proud to be a Chicagoan hearing about grassroots organizing in the city and our rich history in labor organizing.
