Support Programs that Make a Difference

Supporting women in government has always been important to me. I am on the Leadership Council of Illinois Women in Leadership (IWIL), a group which I also helped found which mentors young women who seek to run for office.

As a state legislator it has been my privilege to pass important legislation and support excellent programs. These programs fight every day to make a difference for people…they could use your help. Please check them out and get involved.

We need your help… don’t stay on the sidelines. Change is never easy and never comes quickly.
