Congratulations to Oswaldo Alvarez, who is now the executive director of the Illinois Latino Legislative Caucus Foundation. As a resident of the 20th District, we wish him well in his new role. He previously served as the statewide co-director for Census 2020, and under his leadership, we had the highest response rates in the most populous states.

Congratulations to Palenque LSNA on their 60th anniversary and name change. The organization serves as a pillar in the community for affordable housing, organizing immigrant services, parent mentor programs, and youth development. 


I am also so thankful to Bickerdike for the completion of Lucy Gonzalez Parsons Apartments, which will provide 100% affordable housing units and allow 100 households to remain in our community and mitigate gentrification.
