On June 10, Forefront invites you to join us for our 46th Annual Luncheon.

This year, we will present Equity, Philanthropy, and Cannabis: a timely conversation about the opportunities and complexities of advancing equity in Illinois’ recreational cannabis program, featuring:

  • Heather Steans, Illinois State Senator
  • Toi Hutchinson, Senior Adviser to the Governor on Cannabis Control
  • Edie Moore, Executive Director of Chicago NORML

The discussion will highlight the significance of this new policy for our philanthropic and social impact communities.

For 46 years, Forefront’s Annual Luncheon has been the premier gathering of Illinois’ social impact and philanthropic leaders. Please join us and be part of this vital conversation.

Luncheon tickets include a seated lunch, access to the event program, and an opportunity to connect with peers.
