Keynote Dinner with Ajamu Baraka


Join the Illinois Green Party and keynote speaker Ajamu Baraka, 2016 candidate for Vice-President, at one of Springfield's greenest restaurants!

Originally from Chicago's South Side, Ajamu Baraka returns to Illinois following a campaign as the Green Party's candidate for Vice-President in 2016. Since the election, he has been working to build the Black Alliance for Peace, a grassroots movement to "recapture and redevelop the historic anti-war, anti-imperialist, and pro-peace positions of the radical black movement."

Following the main program of the ILGP Fall Conference on Friday, our friends and supporters are invited to join Ajamu Baraka and the Illinois Green Party for an evening of good food and political discussion at Maldaner's, a Springfield establishment since 1884 that boasts a slow-food menu and a Platinum Green Business certification. 

In addition to Ajamu Baraka's address, the evening will feature a multi-course buffet, silent auction, and cash bar. Doors open at 5:30 for drinks and socializing, and dinner will be served starting at 6:20. 

Please use the form below to purchase dinner tickets. Tickets will also be available at the door for cash/check.
