Hull of a House

Welcome, Secretary Hilda Solis!


Last Thursday, we had a special visitor at the Hull-House Museum– Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis.

Secretary Solis was here at UIC to promote a new campaign for low-wage workers called We Can Help.  Before the press release, she took a brief tour of the museum to learn about Hull-House’s advocacy for labor rights.  The first female cabinet member, Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins, had volunteered at the Hull-House Settlement almost a century before.
