Alice's Family Roots

                               "Mother of the Westside of Chicago"

Nancy Jefferson was known as the ``mother of the West Side. For 25 years, she headed the Midwest Community Council, which helped rebuild the area after urban rioting in the 1960s left much of it burned out. She began as a volunteer at the Midwest Community Council and, in 1963, was named the executive director of the council, the oldest and largest community- based social action group on the West Side. In November 1988, Mrs. Jefferson and a group of other West Side activists threatened to declare ``open war`` on City Hall after acting Mayor Eugene Sawyer awarded a city contract to the nephew of a Chicago alderman.

A year later, she fought Chicago-based Quaker Oats Co. over its lack of minority hiring in management and appointments to its board. Her name was so revered that, in 1986, the late Mayor Harold Washington named a 2 1/2-half-mile stretch of Warren Boulevard as Nancy B. Jefferson Boulevard.

Civil Right activists and Freedom Rider

 

 

Alice was raised with family members who were in the political arena.  Mother Nancy B Jefferson was a Civil Right Activists and her Uncle Wayne Yancy who was a Freedom Rider from the 60th.  Her inspiration came from her family who was in the political arena that’s why it’s in her blood to run this race of President of the United States in 2020.

Because she believed that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect no matter what the color of their skin.
