 Linda Coberly, Chicago Managing Partner of Winston and Strawn, technically is a former Oak Parker. She resides in the city now, but her Oak Park neighbors voted her lifetime citizenship in the 700 block of north Elmwood. 

Linda’s legal reputation benefits from her Supreme Court expertise, she clerked for Justice Breyer, and, as a consequence, you may have seen her on “Chicago Tonight” opining on various Supreme Court matters. 

She was also involved in getting the ERA recently passed in the Illinois legislature, no small accomplishment.  She is also a member of The Chicago Network which states: “Our vision is gender equity for women of all colors. At all levels.  Everywhere.” To register for the November 12th program via Zoom, please click here.


 Interviews with Notable Neighbors

Many of us living in Oak Park, River Forest, and the surrounding communities have resided in the area for years. As you undoubtedly know, we are surrounded by talented neighbors who do interesting, meaningful things. Perhaps we talk to them at a block party or a neighborhood potluck (in the pre-COVID-19 days), or at T-ball games. Slowly over several encounters we discover their vocations and avocations. At some point we say, “Wait a minute, this person is doing really unique things. Others ought to know about this”.

The purpose of our new NCCA interview series is to introduce these notable neighbors to a wider audience. You are encouraged to nominate local folks whom you think fit the definition of people who do things that would be of interest to our members as well as a general audience. The program is an interview format lasting about 45 minutes with a period for audience questions afterward.
