CLA was honored last month to receive a #ILVote microgrant from Forefront Civic Engagement to support voter turnout across Illinois ahead of the November midterm elections.

The grant awarded to CLA provides funds, materials, training and tools to help register at least 250 people to vote. These resources are available as part of Forefront’s Democracy Initiative, which seeks to train nonprofits to encourage Illinois residents to vote and stay civically engaged.

The Chicago Leadership Alliance is a community of young leaders who seek to make a better Chicago. As the midterm elections move closer, CLA hopes to increase voter involvement, thereby helping constituents in Illinois more active and involved in government.
