October 17th- What’s on My Ballot?: Community Roundtable Discussion

For this roundtable we invite the Chicago Native community to host a discussion on who is shaping the future of our community, city, state and nation(s). Through sharing our stories we will begin to develop a collective understanding of who is running for local government here in Chicago, what are key components to their platform and how we locate that information. These community conversations will be the first stage to amplifying and leveraging the voices and impact of the Native vote in 2018 and beyond.

This roundtable will be facilitated by 2018 Champion for Change Anthony Tamez. Antony is currently working in Constituents Services at Chicago’s 35th Ward Office.
