Event description

Description

Come hear from Myles Mendoza, President of Empower Illinois, which brought tax credit scholarships to low-income children throughout Illinois.


Though new political leadership in Illinois had promised to nix the program, Myles and his colleagues coordinated a grassroots that convinced lawmakers to extend it, and thus continued providing access to quality schools for thousands of students across the state.


There are still challenges that lie ahead and the work is not done. Learn about the program and how you can be involved with bringing high quality choice to low-income students when it comes to their education.
