The Federation for Law And Government {F.L.A.G.} is a community outreach organization designed to fill the gap between government, community, and the law enforcement caused by budget constraints. To empower the people with knowledge and make life easier to experience.

Our Organization began in the Thornton Township area of Cook County in 1999 and has since grown to encompass the entire Chicago land area. To better assist our Community, F.L.A.G. has been divided into 4 main divisions of service.

F.L.A.G. volunteers and staff act as “Local Missionaries”, to support the efforts of citizens who choose to live righteously and experience challenges while tending to their daily task. We endeavor to prevent repeat and escalated criminal offenses committed by our Youth and adults, thus breaking the cycle of degrading lifestyle choices, experiences, and mentalities that continue to fester through each generation. SP.I.E.M. {Spotting, Inspection, Evaluation, and Monitoring}, is a program developed by the Chief Director of FLAG in July 2004 to enhance service levels of public transportation and has since been able to positively impact the day to day operation of bus and rail line services for all citizens. FLAG members go out into the community working with a variety of organizations and citizens to deter both crime and decay of the community. We do this by understanding and meeting the needs of the citizens in the community of the cook county area…and so much more.

Advocacy and Investigation

Our Legal Aide Division supports a wide array of critical and valuable interest. Services range from helping those in search of resource solutions in basic/complex financial circumstances, ethics and moral related interest, business consulting, contract review and recommendations, civil, criminal, and corporate cases to indepth involvement with the city jails, the Cook County Department of Corrections, the Illinois Department of Corrections, and their families and those living within Cook County. By means of research and investigation, we determine when a person’s rights have been violated. We then act as a liaison in order to correct such violations, via Arbitrations/Mediations and court proceedings and counseling

Seminars and Workshop

We provide seminars and workshops to churches, community groups, and organizations on such topics as grants, low interest loans, financial planning, copyrights, LEGAL AIDE, real estate, tenants rights, Senior citizens interest, resumes, interviewing techniques, and Ex-Offender workshops on a variety of subjects to those who may otherwise pursue professional interests without a current working knowledge of the types of assistance they are legally entitled too.

Public Safety

FLAG provides safety awareness and responds to citizens that may otherwise be subject to unfavorable circumstances. Our members and staff act as deterrent to criminals acts by having members of the organization physically partnering with Law Enforcement entities in any given community and circumstance. In many cases, we can assist in neutralizing minor incidents that would otherwise result in actual violation of the law.
Our Daily efforts in working with the public transportation patrons and employees have begun to positively impact the levels of safety and response to issues that happen to occur. Via our SP.I.E.M. Program, we have been able to identify and document areas that need particular assistance. We seek to protect the children, adults, seniors, and all from abuse and provide relief to the poor, the distressed, and the underprivileged.

What We Are Not

We are not the Police. We are Tax-Paying Citizens who give assistance to the general public and governmental agencies throughout the state of Illinois. We are not politically involved in campaign issues. We act with local authorities to assist the Cook County Community with certain Legal matters

What You Can Do To Help

*As FLAG is a Non-Profit Organization, We graciously accept all financial and beneficial DONATIONS.**FLAG encourages the Community to Volunteer or Support our Organization in all of its Endeavors.*** In short, the Goals of the Federation for Law And Government {FLAG} are to assist the Communities in the defense of Human and Civil Rights secured by Law. We seek to eliminate prejudice and discrimination in order to restore equality for all. We intend to combat the deterioration of our communities and juvenile counterparts. Most importantly, we act in the interest of Public Safety with the Justice System to prevent the rise of criminal injustices.
