Events

Greens believe in true grassroots democracy! We want to earn your vote by meeting with you face-to-face and hearing your concerns. Please join us at our public events to let us know the kind of elected leadership you want to see at Cook County's billion-dollar, taxpayer-funded Metropolitan Water Reclamation District.

    Stone Soup Co-op in Chicago, IL

    Let's Talk Waste! - Open Discussion on Chicago's Sewers & Floods

    Have you ever wondered...

    • …what that funky after-rain smell is?
    • …why Chicago streets & basements flood so much?
    • …where your sewer/water service taxes go?
    • …who's in charge of all that stuff, anyway?

    Wonder no more! Join the Greens for MWRD (Metropolitan Water Reclamation District) campaign for an info session and open discussion at the Stone Soup Co-op, Wednesday July 25th at 7:00pm.

    Event is open to the public (you do not need to be a co-op member to attend), and will include light refreshments.

    Washington Square Park in Chicago, IL

    Greens for MWRD at the Bughouse Square Debates

    Join the Illinois Green Party (and many other participants) at one of Chicago's oldest and most entertaining free speech traditions!

    This not-too-serious event, hosted by the Newberry Library, invites speakers to participate in free-form, unmoderated oratory, in the tradition of the IWW agitators and many others who mounted soapboxes in Chicago's Washington Square Park from the early 20th century through the 1960s. For more details, see the event website at: https://www.newberry.org/bughouse-square-debates

    The Illinois Green Party will have a table at the event, and candidates will be mounting the soap boxes to speak on Green topics, including our Metropolitan Water Reclamation District campaign's presentation on "The Dirtiest Election in Cook County: Where Sewage and Politics Intersect."

    Come join us for fun and freedom! We need one or two extra bodies to help staff our table, handing out literature and promoting the Green Party, so please reach out to volunteer@ilgp.org if you're able to help.

    We'll see you at the Debates!
