DPOP @ The Oak Park Farmers' Market

Stop by the DPOP table to register to vote, change your voting address, learn more about Democratic candidates, volunteer for a campaign, or to keep up-to-date about important issues facing Illinois and and the country. The DPOP table is in the parkway in front of Pilgrim Church.

In the past few weeks, we have gotten hundreds of voters to sign postcards asking Governor Rauner to make Illinois a welcoming state by signing the important immigration bills already on his desk. We also added many more signatures to the petition demanding that he sign SB337, Senator Harmon's Gun Dealer Licensing Act.

Join us in this important work. The season is long and we always need volunteers to be DPOP's first line of contact with the public. Volunteer as much or as little as you like. Contact Hope at mshallen29@hotmail.com for more information.
