Minibus Tour—Chicago: Her Story

Saturday, March 28

Discover how women shaped the Chicago we know today. Designed for educators, CHM educator Megan Clark, leads a minibus tour that explores how four Chicago women—an activist, a philanthropist, an anarchist, and a reformer—agitated positive change in the lives of other women and children through very different approaches. Tour participants are invited to register a noneducator guest.
