IC-SS EXTRA: May 24, 2022

Our May 23 Candidates Forum Went Virtual

Yesterday was a big day in more ways than one. Together with our partner, UChicago Democrats, we held our IL-01 Candidates Forum – and we had to switch our live forum to an online event at the last minute.

After our regular newsletter went out, we learned of multiple exposures to covid and a positive case among our organizers. It was clear that the only responsible decision was to move the event onto Zoom and Facebook Live. Please watch the Facebook Live recording here. And find our program handout here.

Thanks to all 14 candidates who accepted our invitation!

As you may imagine, Monday was a hectic day. We are very grateful that all 14 candidates who had accepted our original invitations agreed to join us online for the forum. We immediately notified all the ticketholders and put information on our social media about the shift to virtual. We are sincerely sorry if word did not reach everyone who had considered attending and hope that you will have the chance to view the recording of the event.

Please watch the Facebook Live recording here. And find our program handout here.

Next week’s newsletter will provide more information and many, many thanks to all who made this event possible!
