IL Green Party Spring Convention - feat. Troy LaRaviere

IL Green Party Spring Convention - feat. Troy LaRaviere

The Green Party is needed today more than ever. With both parties currently in power answering to big money special interests, only a party that rejects all big money special interest donations and stands for the 99% can help restore true democratic government in America.

The Illinois Green Party holds two Membership Meetings each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. These meetings are our chance to conduct official, statewide business and to hold training and educational sessions, as well as panel discussions and keynote addresses from invited speakers.

The Spring Convention will be held Saturday, March 24th and Sunday March 25th, in the Chicago area. Our Featured Presenter for 2018 will be Troy LaRaviere, President of the Chicago Principals and Administrators Association (CPAA) and candidate for Mayor of Chicago! Troy has an amazing track record of speaking truth to power in Chicago, and is one of a very few high-profile candidates independent of the Chicago/Cook County Democrat machine.
