A Call to Literacy.  The Illinois Literacy Foundation.  A book in every hand.
I am proud to work with The Illinois Literacy Foundation to ensure that every citizen has access to literacy services that put them on a path to lifelong learning. The ILF helps raise critical funds that are targeted to specific local literary needs. They have had a profound impact in enriching lives of citizens who want to enhance their literacy skills to achieve their utmost potential.
