On September 24th, Senator Dick Durbin (ACYPL alumnus to USSR 1978) was 2013 Charles T. Manatt Democracy Award from the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES).  Our CEO Linda Rotunno was at that dinner and heard Senator Durbin share this story about his grandmother immigrating to Illinois from Lithuania and how he then had the chance to go back there more than 60 years later as a delegate of our program.  We’re honored to have given him that opportunity.
