President Speaks to McLean County Diversity Project

Earlier this year, Laurie Bergner, the current President of the IP’s Board of Directors, and former McLean County Sheriff Mike Emery spoke to the McLean County Diversity Project about one controversial issue impacting our nation: immigration. The McLean County Diversity Project is made up of junior high and high school students interested in learning about diversity issues in their own community.
