The 2018 Convention: Community Power, Community Solutions is Sunday, May 6th, at the American Islamic College (640 W. Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL 60613) from 2pm-5:00pm.
What is a Community Convention?
At ONE Northside’s 2018 Convention, a thousand people from across the North Side of Chicago (church groups, college students, people living in affordable housing, homeless people, staff and clients at local social service agencies, and other community members who value a diverse and inclusive North Side) will gather together, along with our elected officials and other decision makers. The Convention is an opportunity to tell the elected officials that represent our communities about our priorities — from police accountability in Chicago to creating a fair tax in the state of Illinois — and demand action.
The name of our 2018 Convention is “Community Power, Community Solutions” because our community has the solutions to problems on the North side of Chicago. Through the power shown at our Convention, and the organizing that we do every day, we make those solutions a reality:
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, Representative Gregory Harris, Representative Will Guzzardi, RepresentativeSara Feigenholtz, Alderman Harry Osterman, Alderman Scott Waguespack, Alderman James Cappleman.
Join us at the Community Convention on May 6th if you want to stand with your neighbors for a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, and we fight for justice together.
