Colette Payne

Colette Payne is a student at Harold Washington College and the mother of three sons. Colette works for Cabrini Green Legal Aid were she coordinates a peer empowerment group, called Visible Voices, for female returning citizens. Her passion is to educate families to build healthier communities.

“I started telling my story as a Visible Voices member, talking with legislators, to changing hearts and changing minds. There is power in storytelling. I not only get to hear of that person’s experience, but put myself in someone else’s shoes”.
