The Business and Professional People For the Public Interest are a little heralded group, but they have been instrumental in offering legal assistance to those resisting the continued segregation of housing in Chicago. Since representing the plaintiffs in the landmark Gautreaux case, BPI-Chicago has rolled up its sleeves and pitched in to help communities better organize in order to have a more influential voice in CHA's plans.
