City’s first lady makes rare public appearance
CHICAGO (AP) – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s wife has taken a rare step into the spotlight to do her own campaigning – for job training for high school students.
In her first interviews as Chicago’s first lady, Amy Rule on Friday highlighted the work Urban Alliance, a nonprofit group that links students from low-income neighborhoods with internships at high-profile companies. Rule, who serves as the organization’s volunteer co-chair, helped the Washington-based nonprofit expand to Chicago in February.
“What I love so much about this program is basically helping these young people at a critical point in their lives where they are maybe (going to) go to college,” Rule said. “We’re really giving them those tangible skills to be successful.”
