Join Young Leaders United for our next virtual Speaker Series event on Wednesday, December 9, 2020. The event will feature a panel of subject matter experts leading a conversation on the impact hunger has on a national and local level.

YLU members are invited to engage in this important conversation and learn how they can support efforts to reduce food insecurity in their local communities - a key to building back a stronger, more equitable Chicago region.
