100 Women Leaders Accountability

Our Commitment

As part of the 100 Women Leaders Campaign, we commit to being true partners with our Leaders, being accountable to you and engaging with you to eliminate racism and empower women and girls in the Champaign-Urbana community.


  • A regular update to our Leaders, telling you the status of our advocacy work on the abuse-to-prison pipeline

  • Ongoing openness to feedback and input on the work we are doing

  • Providing you with opportunities to be ambassadors to the community on the abuse-to-prison pipeline, to educate yourself, to connect with others, to speak out, and to move our shared goals forward

  • Annually inviting you to a forum to give the overview of our advocacy’s directions and plans, and to solicit in-person feedback, concerns, critiques, and ideas on those directions
