PHONE BANK FOR CASTEN AND UNDERWOOD FOR CONGRESS, THURSDAYS

DPOP, 6941-A W. North Avenue, Oak Park

DPOP, along with our co-sponsor, Indivisible Oak Park, is holding phone banks for Lauren Underwood for Congress, Sean Casten for Congress, and Illinois senate Democratic candidates that overlap with these districts. Phone banks take place every Thursday, from 5:00-8:00pm, at our office at 6941-A W. North Avenue in Oak Park.

Help us take back the US Congress by flipping these 2 very winnable districts, right here in northern Illinois. And, at the same, time help us achieve a veto-proof majority in the Illinois Senate. The Blue Wave begins right here!

Please bring your phone and charger, and a tablet or laptop, if possible. If not, we have a limited number of very basic cell phones and netbooks you may use. Come for all or part of the time. No RSVP necessary.
