We’re heading to the finish line of Election season, folks. With so much on the line and no certainty about the results, Equality Illinois will be there for you no matter what happens. On November 5, from 10:30 to 11:30 AM, our What Now? Post-Election Town Hall will offer us all space to hear from experts who will provide both an analysis of what happened as well as actionable next steps on what comes next.

Gun violence prevention advocate Kina Collins, immigrant rights advocate Mony Ruiz-Velasco, and our own Policy Director Mike Ziri will join us for this discussion about the way forward on the issues we care deeply about once Election Day is over.

RSVP today HERE.

You will receive the Zoom information in an email before the event.

Please note:
RSVP as soon as possible! Only the first 100 people to sign up will be able to join the Town Hall, and we already have 65 of folks on the list.

We hope to see you there!
