AURORA, Ill. – Continuing her efforts to be accessible to constituents and Illinois Veterans, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, will host a Virtual Veterans Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, April 30 from 4-5 p.m. virtually through her Facebook page @ILDistrict84.

“During these difficult times, it is important to do all I can to provide information to my fellow Veterans about what programs they can access during this crisis,” said Kifowit. “With the current situation, all Veterans meetings in the community have been cancelled and I am unable to meet with them face-to-face, but Veterans need to know that others and I are here to help them with whatever they need.”

Kifowit, who chairs the Illinois House Veterans Affairs Committee and is a U.S. Marines Veteran herself, will be joined by U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Underwood, a member of the U.S. House Veterans Affairs Committee, and Kane County Veteran Assistant Commission Supervisor Jake Zimmerman to answer any questions from Veteran attendees, provide information about avenues to assistance for Veterans during the COVID–19 crisis and listen to the needs and concerns from the Veteran community. Kifowit will also provide updates on services and state programs Veterans in the community depend on.

“Our veterans have served and sacrificed so much for us, and we all have a collective responsibility to care for our veterans when they return home—especially during times of crisis. More than ever, it’s important our local heroes are not left behind,” said Rep. Lauren Underwood (IL-14). “I look forward to joining Representative Stephanie Kifowit for this important conversation.”

“Providing information on important services for all Veterans is very important,” said Supervisor Zimmerman. “That is why it is important for Veterans to know who to call when they are in need and it is also important to hear from the Veterans in the Community. “
