Protest Erika Harold at Chicago Club City

  • 111 W Grand Avenue Chicago, IL 60654 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Erika Harold is an anti-LGBTQ, anti-woman candidate for Illinois Attorney General. Her views are out of touch with Illinois values.

As Erika and her supporters enter the City Club, we want to welcome them with a 𝙍𝘼𝙄𝙉𝘽𝙊𝙒 of pro-women and pro-LGBTQ folks. Bring signs, wear a shirt of your favorite progressive organization (or any color of the rainbow) and help show Erika that hate is NOT an Illinois value.

Illinois needs an Attorney General who understands that our laws should support the health and well-being of all of us. At a time when human rights and freedoms are under attack, we must elect an Attorney General who will lead the fight to protect our rights.

When: Thursday, October 25 from 11 a.m. to noon
Where: 111 W. Grand Avenue (across the street from Maggiano's Banquets)

Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice: Send Off

Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice: Send Off

Join us for a press conference at 9:30am on Saturday, September 8th at the Federal Plaza to kick off the People's Climate March in Elmwood, Illinois. 

After the press conference at Federal Plaza, we'll be marching to the LaSalle Street Station at 414 S. LaSalle Street to depart at 10:40 for the People's Climate March in Elmwood. Join us! 

Speakers to be determined. 


---
Hundreds of Illinoisans committed to advancing environmental, economic, racial, and immigrant justice will come together on September 8 in Elwood, Illinois as part of a global day of action spearheaded by the People’s Climate Movement.

The People’s Climate Movement is asking everyone to “Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice.” Demonstrators want to show our leaders and elected officials to commit to real solutions to the climate crisis. 

The global day of action comes four days before the start of the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco and two months before the midterm elections.

No more stalling, no more delays: it’s time for a fast and fair transition to 100% renewable energy for all.

We chose to demonstrate in Elwood this year because the city is home to the nation’s third-largest container port. This industrial area is a key source of pollution in the region. Elwood is located in Will County, which has more than 300 warehouses, including those operated by notorious polluters Amazon and Walmart, both of which have received massive tax breaks from our local governments. Most warehouse jobs in the area are non-union, pay poverty wages and are filled by temp workers, the majority of whom are people of color and immigrants.

Real climate leadership rises from below. It means power in the hands of people not corporations. It means economic opportunity for workers and justice and dignity for frontline communities that are the hardest hit by the impacts of the fossil fuel industry and a warming world.

On September 8, we’re demanding that our local leaders commit to building a fossil free world that puts people and justice before profits.

We are at a crossroads. By acting together, we can end the era of fossil fuels and save the climate we all depend on.
