Larry Redmond is running for Congress (IL-1) as a Green! Larry is running for Congress because many of the issues he fights for on the local level need to be addressed on the federal level. He is running as a Green because the Green Party is the only political party that is truly for the people and the planet.
Larry Redmond is a general counsel to the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (CAARPR). In that position, he drafted a proposed City of Chicago ordinance for community control of the Chicago Police Department. Once passed, this ordinance will establish the Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC). CAARPR has created a movement to get this ordinance passed in the city council.
Larry litigates police abuse and other complex civil rights cases in federal court, and he also represents activists in misdemeanor cases.
Larry needs registered voters in US House of Representatives District (IL-1) to sign his electronic petition. Due to a recent court order this e-petition can be used instead of a traditional paper ballot petition, because of the restrictions against in-person petitioning under the Governor’s Covid-19 Executive Order.
To sign Larry’s e-petition, all you have to do are these three easy steps (which should only take a minute or two):
- (optional) You can verify that you are registered to vote and/or whether you reside in the district. If you’re a registered voter you will be provided a list of all your voting districts. Make sure your Congressional (Federal) District is 1. Still not sure if you are a registered voter in Larry’s district? Contact him, see details listed below.
- (optional) Review the Rules for Signing Ballot Petitions.
Note that each registered voter in your family can separately click on the above link to e-sign the petition.
We can always use help spreading the word or volunteering on the campaign trail! If you’d like to volunteer for or donate to the campaign, please contact Larry.
Thank you for your continued support!
