Thank you Franciscan Outreach for inviting me and allowing me the opportunity to speak with your team today! It's always a pleasure to be able to have a real and open discussion about what we're are all doing each day to embrace diversity and inclusion and fight systemic racism so our children won't have to. And most importantly, thank you for the work you all do each day! #CommunityHeroes

"Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in our country's history. Black history does not only live in the past, however, it continues to be written each day. Today we have the honor of having a remarkable woman and community leader with us here to have a thought-provoking conversation about race relations, civil rights and other crucial topics surrounding Black Identify." Executive Director, Richard Ducatenzeiler.

Many thanks to Chicago Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin
for joining us this morning and sharing her story of courage and empowerment.

The crucial conversation on racial equity continued as staff and guests enjoyed lunch.

It is with great sorrow that I, and my entire staff, acknowledge the passing of Karen Lewis, the former Chicago Teachers Union President.

About Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin

Born on Chicago’s South Side and raised on the West Side’s Austin neighborhood, Melissa is the youngest of three daughters raised by her single mother, Eula, who often worked overtime, twelve-hour days, at a union glass manufacturing factory to make ends meet. Eula touted the importance of education for Melissa, and as a product of Chicago Public Schools, Melissa became the first person in her family to attend college. During her freshman year of college at Eastern Illinois University, Melissa faced one of the biggest challenges of her life: After twenty years at her union job, Eula’s plant closed, leaving her mother without a job. Although Melissa offered to leave college to help pay the bills, Eula insisted she pursue a quality education and let nothing get in the way. Melissa’s mother eventually found a job, but it required exhausting double shifts to make ends meet. But setting an example, Eula later earned an undergraduate degree of her own. Melissa graduated college, moved back home to the West Side and was quickly recruited to a position at Allstate Insurance. She rose through managerial ranks, overseeing regional offices and earning a M.B.A. in Finance from Roosevelt University. Interested in finding a way to give back to her community, Melissa sought an Executive in Residency, where Allstate paid for her to work at a charity based organization in Garfield Park, Breakthrough Urban Ministries. While at Breakthrough, Melissa was impacted not only by homeless clients turning their lives around, but also the joyfulness volunteers and staff exhibited while they worked to improve their world. “I was able to see firsthand the effects on poverty in my community. I knew then that I had to have a more direct effect on what was going on around me,” said Melissa. Soon after, in 2016, Melissa ran for and won a seat to become a state representative. As a legislator, Melissa earned a reputation as someone who reaches across the aisle to get things done for working families. As a state representative, she sponsored the improved Illinois education funding formula that directed over $221 million in additional funding to Chicago Public Schools. She was also the chief sponsor of bipartisan legislation that protected funding for child care assistance, a service that allows many working parents to stay in the workforce. Now, as a candidate for Treasurer, Melissa plans to focus her private-sector and financial training on ways to bring development into Chicago’s neighborhoods. Chicago’s billions of dollars of municipal deposits should be leveraged to help Chicago communities grow at the same rate, regardless of their zip code. Melissa believes Chicago’s investments should observe a triple bottom line, ensuring city money isn’t used to harm the environment or working families. Melissa and her husband live in Garfield Park with their young daughter, Jeneva. Melissa is the youth superintendent at Mt. Vernon Church and participates in a youth mentoring program for teenage girls. She also founded a woman’s book club that draws members from Roscoe Village to Lawndale.

Wishing You And Your Family Happy Holidays! Melissa Conyears-Ervin - Treasurer, City of Chicago
sad face😢 someday is using your name and likeness on Instagram. Telling me about some $50,000 federal government grand support when I apply for it. And they asked if I heard of Attorney General Eric Holder before?
y
Are these of any value ?
Thank you Madam Treasurer for all you are doing to assist the underserved in Chicago. I fully intend to make good use of all the resources available to me to secure and sustain my business!
Hello Ms Ervin i would like to know if the city has grants for someone who is trying to get a invention started
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-melissa-conyears-ervin-lori-lightfoot-emails-police-detail-20191125-ywl6geltwrhafl44tbu33tumza-htmlstory.html Who do you think you are ? The "threats" mentioned are part of everyday life the rest of us have to manage every day in this city. No one would even know who you are if you walked down the street....trying to invoke your 11 year old daughter in the conversation is just a red herring. No one forced you to run for this office. If it is too dangerous for your liking, you are free to resign and get a safe job in an office someplace....you just wants a perk...and the City should force you to reimburse the taxpayer $$$ already spent on this unnecessary service....
Thank You...Thank You....Thank You The Women’s Entrepreneur & Small Business Expo was amazing. To City Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin and all the staff, Laurie, Joselynne, Tiffany and a host of others; Your professionalism and care was outstanding. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to connect with some many like minded women. Looking forward to the next event!
Robert Feder today, Hey-Hey! Former Tribune investigative reporter Peter Matuszak has been hired as director of public affairs for the office of Chicago City Treasurer Kurt Summers. “Mr. Matuszak’s extensive experience communicating complex financial concepts to engage a broad audience make him an ideal addition to our team,” Summers said in a statement. Matuszak most recently was press secretary for State Senator Kwame Raoul’s successful campaign for the Democratic nomination for Illinois attorney general. Before working at the Tribune, where he covered government finance, Matuszak served as a senior policy analyst at the Civic Federation.
