Westside Community Town Hall
The New Year is typically an opportunity to learn from the prior year and make positive changes for the upcoming year. On January 4, 2022, 6:00pm, Indivisible Oak Park Area (IOPA) will host Senate President Don Harmon and Speaker of the House Emanuel “Chris” Welch to share the Illinois General Assembly’s 2021 legislative successes and what we can expect for 2022. West Side Chicago and suburban residents are in the enviable position of having two of the most influential legislative executives representing our community, and we want to acknowledge and foster that relationship! Register for the town hall here.
