From the #MeToo movement to the need for common sense gun control laws, there is no time like the present to start planning for the 2018 primaries and elections.

Become equipped to lead get out the vote efforts in your congregations, organizations and social spheres of influence. We have the power to push back and make our voices heard and heeded, but we must act now to make sure everyone who can vote does. It starts with registering more voters. We can all help with that.

Please join us on Saturday morning, February 24 at 9:30 a.m. for a training led by Youth Organizer, Ibie Hart of Common Cause Illinois. She will share tools that will help you register voters in your community and train others to do the same.

Continental breakfast will be available at 9:30 and the training will be from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. We will have a light lunch available for those who would like to stay and continue the conversation following the training.

RSVP to Joyce Leachman at so that we may plan appropriately.
