Members of the Glen Ellyn League joined members from other leagues from across Illinois to hear U.S. Senator Dick Durbin and Renee Ferguson at the annual State of the State event. 

Renee Ferguson, the first African-American investigative reporter in Chicago, shared how suffragist Ida B. Wells, the daughter of slaves, inspired her to give voice to women and marginalized people.
