"In most places in the country, voting is looked upon as a right and a duty, but in Chicago it's a sport." —Dick Gregory
In a time when civil liberties are under assault at all levels of government and basic democratic institutions are being violated and dismantled, it has become all the more important to ignite a grassroots strike against these violators.
We believe that the best way to arm a fight against these assaults is to organize at the street level, seek out and inspire people to take the fight to the ballot box by running for office.
No office is insignificant—down to the elected local school council member!
President Barack Obama tasked us all in his farewell address on January 10, 2017, “If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself. Show up. Dive in.”
We’re heeding his call. Will you? Talk to us.
