In 2015, Margaret founded The South Side Jazz Coalition, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of jazz and live jazz performance on the south side of Chicago. She is a member of the City of Chicago Cultural Council and The Chicago Peace Fellows. Margaret is currently working on the release of her musical tribute to British jazz vocalist Dame Cleo Laine.
