Lesbian Leadership Council approves $2,500 grant!

We want to thank the  Chicago Foundation for Women’s Lesbian Leadership Council for recommending a $2,500 grant to Chicago Books to Women in Prison! We will receive the grant in June. Thank you so much! We are especially touched because this grant was unsolicited. Thank you Lesbian Leadership Council!
