A neighborhood organization dedicated to a better Evanston

The Southeast Evanston Association (SEA) acts as the eyes and ears of our neighborhood by protecting, preserving and defending the quality of life in southeast Evanston and our entire community.

We actively participate in political and economic activities in the city that might affect our shared lakefront, our thriving downtown and our beautiful neighborhoods. If it’s good for the people of Evanston, there’s a good chance that SEA is interested, informed and involved.

For over 50 years, SEA has played an integral role in our community by creating coalitions, engaging elected officials and attending council meetings to speak on behalf of SEA members and the citizens of our city.

Join us today and help us continue to make a positive difference in our neighborhood and Evanston.
