The free program is hosted by Action for a Better Tomorrow, a grassroots, nonpartisan advocacy group.
 

Among Pritzker’s accomplishments is his work spearheading the effort to build 1871, a non-profit small business technology incubator that has created more than 6,000 jobs in Illinois and brought in over $100 million in new capital to support those startup businesses. 
 
Illinois was recently named one of the top tech hubs in the world and 1871 was named one of the top business incubators in the U.S.
 
Pritzker also is highlighting his work in expanding free breakfasts to 55,000 school children and successfully helping change the law so that an additional 175,000 kids can get breakfast nutrition.
 
He has worked for two decades to help increase the number of children in early childhood education programs, and was appointed by President Obama in 2014 to organize the National Summit on Early Childhood Education.
