DPOP monthly meeting
10:00am, Saturday, November 10
DPOP, 6941-A W. North Avenue, Oak Park

Join the Democratic Party of Oak Park this Saturday, at our headquarters on North Avenue, for our monthly Second Saturday meeting. 

It has been a long and stressful election season, but in the end, thanks in part to the hard work of DPOP's fabulous volunteers, we had a great outcome in Oak Park and Illinois. Come to our monthly meeting this Saturday at 10am to discuss the BLUENAMI election results! We have invited our Democratic winners to stop in and help us celebrate our Illinois Blue Wave. 

As always, doors open at 9:30 for coffee and conversation. 


6:30pm, Monday, November 19
Oak Park Library, 834 Lake Street, Oak Park

Join Oak Park Progressive Women for a screening of Vice's "Raised in the System." Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire, The Night Of) examines the juvenile justice system and investigates solutions communities are employing that are resulting in drastic drops in crime and incarceration. Screening starts at 6:30pm, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Michelle Mbekeani (Juvenile Justice Policy Advisor) which includes Kim Foxx (Illinois State's Attorney), Shobha Mahadev (Attorney) 

With over 850,000 juvenile arrests every year and 48,000 kids sitting in lock-up daily, the U.S. has the highest incarceration rate of minors on Earth. There are solutions and we need to all be a part of making change.
