Please join Representative Jehan A. Gordon for a discussion on how to address inequity and poverty in the Greater Northwest Illinois Region–Peoria, Rockford, and Rock Island.
The Illinois Commission on Poverty Elimination and Economic Security is working on a plan to eliminate poverty in Illinois over the next 15 years. We want to know how we can address the unique experiences of those living in this region as we tackle systemic poverty and racism in Illinois.
We invite you to join us on Thursday, August 26th from 6:00-8:00 pm for a virtual listening session. We want to know how we can address the unique experiences of those living in this region as we tackle systemic poverty and racism in Illinois.
We encourage the attendance of all members of the community and to compensate those who attend for their time and attention, we are offering a $25 gift card incentive for those who participate.
Your feedback matters and will be used to help your government representatives create impactful policies to fight poverty.
If you would like to attend virtually via zoom, please register for the event HERE!
Thank you for your time and participation! We look forward to seeing you on August 26th.
