Metropolitan Safari Chicago

Elizabeth Dearborn Davis, CEO

We traveled to the Windy City for our 2nd stop of Metropolitan Safari.

Our hosts, Jon & Rebecca Furr, and their daughter Elsa

Our event was hosted by the Jon & Rebecca Furr family at their home in the South Loop. I met Jon & Rebecca when they traveled to Rwanda in 2009 to adopt their daughter Elsa.

On September 27, Jon hosted a roundtable event at his law firm, Holland & Knight, with local activists, international education experts, and lawyers to discuss new initiatives in African development. Judd Holzman, the Executive Director of Link Community Development, spoke about their work in primary education in Africa, while Allen & Noella provided insight into the higher education system in Africa.

Thank you to the friends of Akilah who came to our event. This is our 2nd year hosting an event in Chicago and we are excited to see our base of support grow in this special city
