Jill says: It’s time to build a people’s movement to end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of every person. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes; it’s not in our dreams — it’s in our hands!
Dr. Stein will talk about her urgently needed policies that work for the people, not the powerful: green jobs, fair wages, social justice, and a future for the planet and for human dignity.
Other invited speakers are our Illinois Green Party candidates: Scott Summers for U.S. Senate, Tim Curtin for IL Comptroller, and Metropolitan Water District candidates, George Milkowski, Karen Roothaan, Michael Smith, andChristopher Anthony.
The Chicago Rally with Jill Stein will be at the historic Preston Bradley Building in Uptown, home of the Peoples Church of Chicago, 941 W. Lawrence, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Please RSVP at the Facebook event page or the Illinois Green Party website to let us know you’re coming!
