    Fall Cookout - Cook County Green Party

    maywood-grove.jpg

    Join the Cook County Green Party for our annual fall cookout!

    Meet your fellow Cook County Greens at a relaxed social event with food, Frisbee, and forests. If you've never been to a Green Party event before, this is a great chance to meet the fine folks fighting for change in Cook County.

    Food options will include vegetarian dishes. Feel free to bring a small dish or a beverage to share if you'd like. Party starts at 3:00pm, and we'll eat around 4-4:30ish. (Not too strict of a schedule on this one.)

    The Maywood Grove picnic shelter is located in the Cook County Forest Preserve, Indian Boundary Division, at the end of Ohio St, in Maywood, IL:

    2017 Illinois Green Party Fall Conference

    ILGP_Meeting.JPG

    The Green Party is needed today more than ever. Without the Green Party, the agenda of America’s
    corporate overlords and the two parties that serve them will continue unchallenged -- from perpetual
    war, to out-of- control police violence, resurgent systemic racism, attacks on education and public
    services, poverty, the ravaging of our natural environment – and many other social ills.
