Being the Difference at the Heartland Alliance Annual Dinner


On October 11, Heartland Alliance celebrated the bold and courageous actions we are taking to create a future of equity and opportunity for all at our Annual Dinner.

A highlight of the evening was an amazing discussion with Mike Brady, Eddie Bocanegra, READI Chicago participant Mendai, and Evelyn Diaz. Our panelists shared personal stories about how access to opportunity has shaped their lives, inspiring us all to think about how each one of us has the potential to be the difference in the lives of others and in our communities. Learn more about how READI Chicago and Greyston are helping to remove barriers to employment for those who are marginalized, including people with criminal backgrounds.

Thanks to our generous sponsors and guests, more than $360,000 was raised to support the important work of Heartland Alliance! We demonstrated that–together–we can be the difference for those among us who are often overlooked!
