On Friday, March 24, at 10:30 a.m. in the James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph St., African-American transgender activist LaSaia Wade will be among those Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza will recognize for Women's History Month.

In a letter to Wade, Mendoza wrote, in part, "As we honor the trailblazers of the past whose impact through grassroots efforts and struggles created opportunities and triumphs of historic proportions, we also must applaud today's visionaries for their ongoing efforts. Their commitment to achieving both personal and professional success is deserving of our recognition and support."
