Another Successful Women Who Dared Event

Kina Collins and Kim Foxx Accept their Women Who Dared Award

Chicago NOW’s annual Women Who Dared fundraising event took place last week and was a resounding success! This year, CNOW honored Cook County States Attorney Kim Foxx and the Chairwoman for the Illinois Council on Women and Girls Kina Collins.

Kina and Kim gave inspirational addresses, and the event was an empowering display of what women can do when we come together.
