Check out what we've been up to!

At Mannhouse Consulting, we understand the importance in making a positive social impact through restorative justice and cultural awareness. We actively engage with local communities to understand their needs and work together to find solutions. By building strong relationships and partnerships we can create lasting change and promote social justice and cultural empowerment. We provide resources and services that impact the injustices, inequities, and misconceptions of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and low-income persons and their experiences. We are dedicated to fostering collaboration and engagement through initiatives that promote cultural understanding and advance equity for [previously] URP/CLED individuals and historically minoritized groups.  

Take a look at some of the services we provide and the projects we're currently working on through our commitment to creating a more just and equitable society.

Current Projects

Northern Illinois Indigenous Impact

Community Action Project: Bridging the Gaps in Our Backyard, A Call for Action Through Awareness

Legislation to repatriate and financially compensate the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation for stolen land near Shabbona State Park in Illinois is currently underway. This project was initially developed to strengthen community relationships and alleviate the mistrust of the local government. 

Partnering with Northern Illinois University, The Pick Museum of Anthropology, The DeKalb Public Library, The Naper Settlement Museum, The DeKalb County History Center and Indigenous leaders from the Potawatomi and Ramapough Lenape Nations, we are developing a series of [free] learning events to bring Indigenous awareness to the community through exhibition, storytelling and hands-on experiential activities. 

Through this project we will institute sustainable connection between the tribe and the university by implementing opportunities for collaboration through different entities such as the Center for Latino and Latin American Studies and the First Nations student organization. 

Components of this project will serve as a catalyst for cultural competency and understanding the nuances of the communities in our very own backyard throughout Northern Illinois, giving us tools and resources for sustainable and mutually beneficial partnership. 

Stay tuned for additional project updates and events!
