Change Cicero Avenue to Mandela Road

President Nelson Mandela is an inspiration to many, and it would be a small gesture from our partnering communities to change the name of Cicero Avenue to Mandela Road.

Why is this important?

In honor of the late South African statesman, Nobel Peace Prize winner and first President of the post-apartheid South Africa, Nelson Mandela. Changing Cicero Avenue to Mandela road will send a message that Illinois stands for a strong road for justice.
