HONOR IDA B WELLS BARNETT - RENAME BALBO DRIVE
September 6, 2017 The League of Women Voters of Chicago announces today that it will support efforts to change the name of Balbo Drive, the heavily traveled street on the lakefront, and proposes that the street bear the name of Ida B. Wells Barnett. The group is asking city residents to contact their aldermen and ask for the name change to honor the suffragist, civil rights activist and investigative journalist who was an early leader of the civil and women's rights movements, worked against segregation in Chicago's public schools and helped found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
Read the full press release.
The League suggests that citizens who wish to join in this campaign contact their aldermen.
