What a powerful gathering of freedom fighters and change agents! Illinois for All held our second aldermanic meet and greet, this time on the South Side of Chicago. Almost 200 candidates and voters packed the Mt. Hope M.B. Church to experience the future #BrandNewCouncil. Thanks to Kina Collins, Litesa E. Wallace, and Nina Turner for leading and speaking truth to power.
So grateful to Pastor Alvis Martin for the opportunity to host this at the church. As Nina reminded us, the fight for liberation began in Black churches and we’re continuing that tradition and honoring freedom fighters of the past.
