Martinez shares importance of Illinois Cooperative Advancement Act
My thoughts are that this is something that’s long-needed. We’ve waited for a long time to have this happen. I know that we in my community so many people are out there on the streets looking for jobs, trying to find ways to be inclusive of our society, and I am so

we’ve all faced this in our communities, and that’s why these kind of cooperatives are so important in our communities, so we can build our community.

These are the kind of bills that we have to make sure that we will find the protection and make sure that we are all working together as a community.
