    McHenry County Green Party Inaugural Meeting

    mchenry_county_facebook_event.png

    McHenry County is turning Green!

    Join us Sunday, April 30 for an inaugural meeting of the McHenry County Green Party. We will be meeting at the home of Donna Chung in Wonder Lake, IL, starting at 4:00pm.

    The Green Party is a true grassroots organization, and most decision-making power rests in the hands of the local chapters. County party meetings give members a direct say in what issues the party addresses, what candidates the party runs, and how party funds are spent in their district. 

    Agenda items for the meeting will include: introductions and icebreaker, affiliation with the state party (ILGP), and a brief presentation on organizing and state party resources by ILGP Volunteer Director Geoffrey Cubbage. 

    This is a public event, open to anyone with an interest in the Green Party. You do not need to be a current or past member of the Illinois Green Party to attend (although we'll certainly encourage you to sign up while you're there!).

    The Illinois Green Party marches in solidarity with labor!

    We have endorsed the May Day Chicago Coalition's rally and march from Union Park to Daley Plaza, and will be joining our comrades in demonstrating for labor and the rights of working people.

    To join us for the full rally-and-march event, meet at Union Park at 12:30pm. A rally at the park will be followed by a march to Daley Plaza and speeches at a second rally organized by the Chicago Federation of Labor.

    If you cannot join for the full march, and want to meet up with Green Party supporters at Daley Plaza, join us at the north-west corner of the large Picasso statue starting at 3:45pm. An ILGP member with a clipboard will be on hand to help gather latecomers. 

    May Day is recognized worldwide as a day of labor solidarity. Join us in standing with the working people of all nations on May 1st!

    Help us thank the people that power our party!

    The Green Party is a donor-sustained political party. We take no corporate money. Join us in thanking our regular donors for their support and inviting them to share their reasons for Going Green: Outreach Director Erica Kadel will be hosting an afternoon of refreshments, socializing, and low-key phonebanking on Chicago's North Side, Saturday May 6th, from 1:00-5:00pm. The space is between the Bryn Mawr and Thorndale Red Line stops, has a parking lot, and requires the ability to navigate a staircase! Address will be sent out to attendees the day before the event.

    This will be a great event for first-time volunteers and anyone interested in helping out with upcoming political campaigns. ILGP staff and some of our prospective 2018 candidates will be on hand and manning the phones, so drop on by to meet the party and help us keep our supporters active and engaged!

    For further information, contact our Outreach Director Erica Kadel at outreach@ilgp.org.

    DuPage Greens Monthly Meeting

    DuPageGreens4JillTeam.jpg

    On Monday May 8, 2017 at 7pm at the DuPage Greens Headquarters (213 S. Wheaton Ave, Wheaton) we will hold our DuPage County Green Party Monthly Meeting.

    There will be many things to discuss including:

      - Volunteering to phonebank with the DuPage Greens and the National Nurses Union to support SB 1970 (the LaSalle Street Tax Bill) and a "People and Planet First Budget"

      - Review of April 29th 4th Annual DuPage Greens Great Western Trail Earth Day Clean Up, Climate Marches and May Day Rallies

      - 2018 candidate recruitment

      - Media, Events and Outreach/Recruitment/Membership Committees activities

      - Upcoming events

    Facebook Event

    After the meeting, about 9pm, we will head over to Muldoon’s Irish Eatery and Pub located at 133 W Front St., less than 2 blocks from the DuPage Greens Headquarters, for additional conversation.

    Also, please consider donating (dupagegreens.org/donate) to the DuPage Greens. It takes lots of small individual donations from people like you to cover the expenses required to support candidates and grow the Green Party in DuPage County, since as I’m sure you know, we don’t take any big money special interest contributions so we can fight for economic, social, environmental, racial and democratic justice for everyone in DuPage County, not just the fat cats.

    In these trying times with a neofascist takeover of the leadership of the most powerful nation in the world, it’s our duty to the 99% to provide a vigorous opposition to the two party tyranny, so…

    Don’t Demoralize, Organize!

    Chair, DuPage County Green Party
