School House On The Rocks!
November 21, 2019 @ 5:15 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0$25.00
Democracy is Not a Spectator Sport! The rallying cry of the 1970s children’s program School House Rock! was “knowledge is power.” We couldn’t agree more. But passing and changing laws isn’t as simple as a bill walking up the steps of Capitol Hill.
Join us on Thursday, November 21st to experience a vibrant dialogue with political and civic leaders about recent victories and the importance of participation, advocacy, and activism. Hear from Illinois Senator Cristina Castro, Stevie Valles of Chicago Votes, Audra Wilson of the League of Women Voters of Illinois, and Tina Hone of YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, moderated by WE’s CEO Cherita Ellens. Leave armed with the knowledge you need to help build power and win #EquityForAll—including the importance of elections and Census 2020!
