The Chicago Chapter of the National Organization for Women is seeking nominations for Women WhoDared, its annual award ceremony recognizing the vital work of women making a difference in Chicago. Each fall, CNOW honors one elected official and one community organizer working to serve and uplift women and girls in our city and beyond.
Recent past honorees on the elected official side include City Clerk Susana Mendoza, Judge Gloria Chevere, and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. Community organizing honorees have included Scheherazade Tillet of A Long Walk Home, Mariame Kaba of Project NIA, and the Teatro Luna Theatre Company. At the Women Who Dared event in October, you will hear from these amazing women and be part of the conversation about CNOW’s future.
