We are excited to announce that Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky will be joining us at Y.O.U.'s 6th Annual Diverse Evanston Walks United (DEWU) this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
This youth-driven community event will begin at 11:00 AM on Monday, January 16th, and will feature guest speakers, a live portrait artist, performances by youth, and a panel discussion. Congresswoman Schakowsky is excited to join the community by participating and providing brief remarks during the event.
Jan Schakowsky was elected to represent Illinois' 9th Congressional District on November 3, 1998, after serving for eight years in the Illinois State Assembly. She is in her 7th term, serving in the House Democratic leadership as a Chief Deputy Whip and as a member of the Steering and Policy Committee.
Jan grew up in the 9th District and returns home every weekend to meet with individual constituents, business leaders, and groups large and small. The Constituent Advocates in her two district offices work tirelessly to help the diverse range of constituents in the 9th District and are known far and wide for their welcoming attitude and effective problem solving. Jan lives in Evanston, Illinois with her husband Robert Creamer.*
