The 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech this week got us thinking about Dr. King’s dream, that one day the fetters of poverty and discrimination would be lifted from the poorest and most vulnerable among us.Your support of LAF helps make that dream more of a reality for thousands of people living in Cook County. It ensures we can continue to be there for the people who need us the most. If you haven’t had an opportunity yet this year to make a financial investment in our work, you can make a contribution online today. Together, we can keep working towards the vision, and the ideals, Dr. King articulated so powerfully 50 years ago on a hot August day in our nation’s capital.
