Phoebe also previously organized in Chicago with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, leading city and county campaigns to successfully expand health care access for low income, uninsured residents, strengthen Chicago’s welcoming city ordinance, and develop Chicago’s municipal identification card.
