In addition, the session will address how we can be effective allies and stand with undocumented workers and families in this challenging environment, and specifically how we can ACT NOW in RAC-IL's Campaign for SB 35 - the Safe Zones Act - and other key legislation included in the Campaign for a Welcoming IL!
