5:00-8:00pm, Thursday, April 19
DPOP, 6941-A W North Avenue, Oak Park

ACT NOW TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE IN ILLINOIS! 
Please join Democratic Party of Oak Park and the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence on Thursday to work to override Governor Rauner's veto of Senator Don Harmon's bill - SB1657 - Gun Dealer Licensing Act. We have less than a week to get this done!

We will be calling voters across Illinois, asking them to call their state senator to tell her/him to vote to override the veto. Come for all or just part of the time. Please bring your phone, charger, and laptop or tablet, if possible.  

2018 FARMERS' MARKET KICKOFF DINNER/TEAM MEETING, MAY 1


6:00pm, Tuesday, May 1
DPOP, 6941-A W North Avenue, Oak Park

It's hard to believe, with today's weather, but the Oak Park Farmers' Market will be starting next month. Saturday, May 19th is opening day.

On May 1st at 6:00pm, we will have a Farmers Market kickoff dinner/team meeting at DPOP.  RSVP to mshallen29@hotmail.com. If you know anyone who would like to help out this year, please invite them to the dinner and provide their email address to us. 

The Farmers' Market team is the front line for DPOP, our most visible and regular contact with the voters of Oak Park and surrounding communities. This will be a BIG YEAR - we will be taking back Illinois from Rauner and recapturing congressional seats throughout Illinois. Please join us and be part of the "Blue Wave 2018"!

Thanks,
Hope, Ron, Brad & Doreen
