On Thursday, March 26, at 6:30 p.m., the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library plays host to Abner Mikva, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014 for a career of service spanning all three branches of government. The Chicago resident served in Congress from 1969-73 and again from 1975-79. He then served as a federal judge from 1979-1994. In 1994, Mikva was appointed White House counsel to President Bill Clinton. In 1997, Mikva and his wife, Zoe, founded the Mikva Challenge, a program currently serving 110 Chicago-area schools by encouraging young people to participate in elections, policy-making and community problem-solving. Mikva’s lecture is free and open to the public but space is limited, so reserve your seat online at http://presidentlincoln.org.
