Support Cook County’s $13 Minimum Wage

Sundays 4pm to 6pm through June
GPAD Headquarters
1310 West Northwest Highway, Arlington Heights

A new Cook County ordinance increases the minimum wage to $13 over 3 years. Some suburban Mayors and Boards of Trustees are seeking to opt out of the minimum wage. They need to hear from residents and businesses who support paying a livable wage. Join Reclaim Chicago NW Suburbs’ campaign to phonebank residents of Cook County to alert them and urge them to contact their elected representatives. Bring laptops& phones. (We have several desktop computers for those who don’t have laptops.) Contact Peg Lane at West Northwest Highway, Arlington Heights

The Comeback Illinois Agenda

Our state is falling apart, but our state government is paralyzed by partisan bickering instead of solving problems. Things are working just fine for the wealthy and powerful special interests, but the rest of us are left behind.

It’s time for a comeback. We have a real plan to put people above special interests, to create long-term solutions for our budget crisis, and to make Illinois a better place to earn a living and raise a family.

Volunteer Now

The time to volunteer is now! We have less than 75 days to Election Day, and voting starts even earlier. Our success depends on helping Democratic candidates win at all levels. Nothing progressive can get done, unless we alter the power balance in the US Congress. We will have support staff from multiple campaigns sharing our offices at least Mon-Saturday 11am to late evening, for phoning, organizing, canvassing and generally helping all our candidates. We also are signing up neighborhood reps, for those who would rather concentrate on Democrats in their own neighborhoods. Please drop in or call. Mark

Volunteer To Be a Precinct Representative

We are building our team of representatives to keep in contact with Democrats all around us in our neighborhoods. We will provide lists, materials, training, and ongoing support. Our reps will simply stay in contact with neighbors who already identify with Democratic and Progressive values. You can make the job as easy or complicated as you wish. Contact if you would like to consider this opportunity to get more involved
