Making a strong case for effective investments in children and youth in the Land of Lincoln

Our nearly 600 Illinois business, law enforcement, and retired military leader members make a persuasive case for effective investments in children and youth. They focus attention on the urgent need to give children their best chance to succeed – starting with the youngest and prioritizing the most at-risk. High-quality early education is one of several initiatives that will get Illinois children on the right track, boost our national security, keep our communities safe, and strengthen our economy.
