E10: Fabric & Color Patterns

The flag is more than just fabric and color patterns. Its a reminder… a point of reference, it gives us a way collectively to think about how far we’ve come and yet how far we have to go. People gave their lives so that we could live in a better country, and it’s our responsibility to pick up that mantle and move it forward. We can’t settle for disunity. We have to find ways to keep on perfecting that union. It captures our collective memory as well as collective our desire to be the best that we can be and the greatest we can be.

About Our City,
Our Story

Our Vision

We tell the stories that if you live in Rockford, it makes you glad that you do. The stories that if you’re from Rockford, they make you proud to be. The stories that if you’ve never been to Rockford, they make you want to come here.

Our City

These stories are a response to the national attention Rockford, Illinois received in 2011: from Forbes, #9 Most Dangerous in US; from the Wall Street Journal, #10th Most Dangerous in US; New York Times, Portraits From a Job-Starved City; and Comedy Central’s The Daily Show portrayed Rockford as a wasteland littered with chain fast food restaurants.
