League of Women Voters of Illinois Executive Director appointed as Chair of the Cook County Commission on Women’s Issues

The League of Women Voters of Illinois is excited to announce that Executive Director Audra Wilson has been appointed by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to chair serve as the chair of the Cook County Commissioner on Women’s Issues. This appointment will help to amplify the voices of the women of Cook County and help to address the issues and obstacles that they face each and every day.

“For almost a century, the League has been an integral part of advocating for women’s rights in Illinois through grassroots and civic engagement,” says Wilson. “I am honored to have been chosen to be a voice in this capacity and to continue my work supporting and advancing women’s issues.”

Wilson, a public policy attorney with a depth of experience in poverty law and diversity, has been an advocate for women and marginalized people for the breadth of her career. Most recently, as the Deputy Chief of Staff for U.S. Congresswoman Robin Kelly (IL-2), Wilson was integral in spearheading and launching several major diversity initiatives benefitting women’s and other marginalized communities. Wilson has used her public policy knowledge, legislative experience and ability to create consensus as a means to move issues forward.

“The League has been able to expand and evolve because of the leadership and vision of Audra,” says LWVIL Board President, Allyson Haut, the Board President of the League of Women Voters of Illinois. “She continues the great legacy of the League while also helping guide us towards a brighter future.” Wilson was officially appointed on September 26, 2019 and presided over her first meeting on October 3, 2019.

The League of Women Voters of Illinois will be celebrating their 100th Anniversary in 2020 with a series of statewide events that will include state and national legislators and special guests. For more information, visit lwvil.org.
