Letters to Cook County Commissioners

Updated: May 19, 2021

ATTENTION ITALIAN AMERICANS of COOK COUNTY: The Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans needs your help in saving the Columbus Day holiday in Cook County. An ordinance has been proposed that replaces Columbus Day with Indigenous People's Day. We need you to send your sentiments to YOUR Cook County Commissioner. Or simply use the letter provided HERE. 1. Please fill in the correct date and address the letter to your Cook County Commissioner found HERE and mail it to them today! 2. Don’t know who your Cook County Commissioner is? Please refer to the map below and the list of corresponding commissioners here to identify your Commissioner. 3. Mailing letters really does help the Commissioners hear our concerns.

Thank you for your participation in this important campaign to preserve Columbus Day in Cook County, IL.
