We’re Turning 20!

Mikva Challenge was founded to mark the remarkable public service legacy of Ab and Zoe Mikva. The goal: inspire Chicago city youth to participate in democracy through real-life electoral experiences. After 20 years of igniting generations of youth leaders to take on the mantle of public service, we want to take a look back at where we’ve been and ahead to where we’re going, with you, our Mikva family.
