IWIL Alum, Rep. Litesa Wallace stands up for parents

Yesterday, State Representative Litesa Wallace and IWIL Class of 2014, spoke on the floor of the IL House of Representatives. With the State budget impasse one of the programs that is not getting funded are the subsidies for child care for qualified parents. Litesa spoke from the heart. She told her story of a struggling single mother, picking up her life after an abusive marriage. We need more women like Litesa fighting for families and women. We need more women at the decision making table and we need IWIL to help more women get there.
