Why is Chicago so corrupt? What does a community organizer do? How can you help someone run for local office? What is a TIF and how does it impact your community? Get the answers - and much MORE - at the POWER Institute's Fall 2018 workshop series! The CivicLab has launched the POWER Institute (People Organizing to Win, Engage & Resist) to get you TRAINED to ORGANIZE and WIN a Chicago and a world that we all deserve and can prosper in. Our trainers are super experienced in grassroots democracy with over 60 years of public campaigns between them! In this session, we will be exploring: "Grassroots Campaigning 101 - Chicago Election Special" - What does it take to run for local office in Chicago? How do you start to think about running for office or helping others to win. This special edition of this very popular workshop will review the Chicago municipal election results. We hope to bring in a surprise guest or two!
