Join us to figure out how we make next year better! 

We can't sit back and let Congress and/or the Illinois General Assembly turn back all the gains we have made in the past decades.

On Saturday January 7th join me, State Senator Heather Steans, Alderman Harry Osterman, State Rep. Kelly Cassidy and Committeewoman Carol Ronen for a community forum to hear what is happening in Washington, Springfield and Chicago, and learn what concrete steps you can take right now to have your voice heard and make a difference.

We can put 2016 behind us. But we can't stop fighting for all those things that brought us to the table. A woman's right to choose, affordable health care, equal rights. just to name a few priorities.  We have a lot at stake and we need to act.
