Action 3: Chicago Votes Unlock Civics Cookout on 8/24

Join Chicago Votes for our upcoming Unlock Civics Cookout where we will be re-imagining democracy and uplifting the effects of racial capitalism. This is the last of a series of Give A Sh*t Happy Hours that Chicago Votes is doing with the University of Chicago’s GenForward Survey.

The intersection of racial capitalism and democracy has been at the core of Chicago Votes’ work over the course of 2019; from registering voters in pretrial detention to passing two laws that increase access to the ballot box for black and brown people in the criminal justice system. This event will be a celebration of our volunteers and partners to highlight the progress we have made together to break the civic chains that have confined black and brown people's voices for far too long. We have taken a huge step this year in dismantling the power structure that has given oppressors control over the lives of the oppressed. We have a long way to go, but we should celebrate these victories when they are achieved! And we all love a good party, so join us!

 When: Saturday, August 24, 4-7pm
Where: La Villita Park, 2800 S. Sacramento (underneath the canopy)

Action via Chicago Votes
