People Power Political Activists (PPPA) is hosting an organizing fair on Sunday, June 4, 2017. We hope that your organization will participate in the event. For information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Date: Sunday, June 4, 2017
Time: 1:30pm-4:30 pm...
Address: Sulzer Regional Library, 4455 N. Lincoln, Chicago, IL, 60626
The theme of the event is how we build our organizations and how you can too. We’ll have a panel discussion by the founders of the various grassroots organization and will have political directors from various organizations talking about the collaboration between traditional political organizers and grassroots folks. Members of the community will have an opportunity to network and sign-up to volunteer with one of the organizations that match well with the kind of activism they would like to participate in.
The purpose of this event is to turn your anger into political activism. Don’t just sit on the sidelines and let others determine what kind of world you will be living in.
All of the organizations that will be present are volunteer led, nonprofits and volunteers working together to make a difference in their community.
Come join us this Sunday at the People Power Political Activists Organizing Fair from 1:30 - 4:30 pm at Chicago Public Library (4455 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL)
Community gardening is a growing (pun totally intended) initiative that works to solve the problems of the lack of urban green spaces, food deserts, and disconnected neighborhoods. We would like you to find a local garden using this link provided by the American Community Garden Association: https://communitygarden.org/find-a-garden/ . And once you do, determine a way to help that program.
Are you a known Plant Assassin? Would no one describe you as having a green thumb? Let...’s get real, if you look at a plant, does it start to wither and die? Hey, us too, but we really try, despite killing hundreds...maybe even thousands of plants. But that’s ok, not only do awesome gardeners oversee volunteers, they can also help you cultivate (pun once again intended) your gardening skills. If you can’t volunteer maybe a donation of supplies is needed. Digging (yep, again) into the pocket for a small cash donation is never a bad idea.
The executives at the Ladies Professional Golf Association responded to the demand to move the 2017 U.S. Women's Open from Donald Trump's golf course--and they're clearly feeling the pressure!
We have their attention--especially since 100,000 people signed the petition, and UltraViolet members protested this year's first LPGA tournament on U.S. soil in Phoenix, AZ while planes flew the message, "LPGA: Take a mulligan. Dump sexist Trump," over the golf course.
Now, can you hel...p push the Ladies Professional Golf Association and U.S. Golf Association over the edge and call their offices?
This administration's actions on immigration run counter to our core values. But I'm excited to tell you that we're gearing up for the next big push-back -- and we need you to be a part of it.
Since taking office, they've repeatedly targeted immigrant communities through executive actions like the Muslim travel ban, and walked back promises to DREAMers -- all while promising to build an unnecessary, costly border wall....
Efforts like these are discriminatory, and won't make our communities any safer, but this administration -- and their allies in Congress -- show no signs of backing down. We can't stand by and let their actions go unchallenged.
This week, we're kicking off the next round of efforts to stop the administration's anti-immigration agenda and hold elected officials accountable. You've signed on to get plugged into immigration efforts on the ground -- and this is your chance to do just that. Join us for a kick-off call on Thursday night.
Here are the details:

Petition for Special Prosecutor After Comey Firing
President Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey, who was overseeing a criminal investigation into allegations of improper ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Democrat, Republican or Independent — every American should be alarmed at the Trump Regime’s rush to authoritarianism....
Add Your Name Now
We, the undersigned, demand a special prosecutor to find out what’s really going on with Trump and Russia, and whether the Comey firing should be considered obstruction of justice.
