June 14, 2020: Editorial: Chicago Forward — Your proposals, and hope for our youth (Chicago Tribune)
"What these young souls don't know is that we need these 'outsiders' as much as they need us 'insiders,' the engaged citizens of Chicago. Our city as a whole will rise or fall depending upon our success in facilitating their success. These are young lives in the balance. Ours is a city in the balance."
“True peace is not merely the absence of war, it is the presence of justice.” - Jane Addams
“We are in close contact with all our families. At this time, children are anxious and afraid, and they pick up even more when parents show understandable fears. We are dealing with families in high poverty and violence—we want them to know that they can rely on us.” - Karen G. Foley, JPA President & CEO
St. Jane launches its “Better Breaks Program” to encourage hotel meeting attendees to give back and volunteer during conference downtime in JPA partner schools.
