Voices for Illinois Children Invites You to Participate in Our Evanston Community Forum on Children's Issues
Make children count during this election. Join us as Evanston community leaders and residents discuss their vision for early childhood and state legislators describe the steps they will take to ensure our children get the best possible start in life. Become informed about the state's early childhood budget, and learn how you can have a greater voice in the legislative process.
