This year, the Judy Baar Topinka Charitable Foundation is releasing the following full video prepared about Judy in honor of her wonderful life. This video is often used during presentations about the book, Just Judy, A Citizen and Leader for Illinois, for school groups, book signings, and educational conferences. Enjoy the video and remember an incredible lady.

Judy was a model for all of us demonstrating that anyone with passion, drive, and hard work can triumph in the face of great odds. Just like Judy, you can take on the establishment and make changes which are good. Like Judy, you may not always win, but you should never give up. Judy Baar Topinka’s life has solid lessons for all of us today and for future generations. She is a true role model for everyone.
