Believe it or not, I do get Saturdays off, and this Saturday I’ll be at the Will County Resistance Fair. It’s a free gathering of Will County progressive groups. The fair provides an opportunity to find volunteer opportunities or possible employment. It is at the Holiday Inn and Suites, 205 Remington Boulevard, Bolingbrook, Illinois 60440. It runs from 10 AM to 4 PM. The hosts are Will County Board member Jackie Traynere and Congressperson Bill Foster.
Representatives from the following groups will be there: CAIR, NAACP, Indivisible, Our Revolution, Mom’s Demand Action, Healthy Illinois, PDA, and Food and Water Watch.
In addition to visiting booths, visitors can also attend these free training sessions:
11:00 AM: Advanced Social & Mainstream Media by Food and Water Watch
12:00 PM: Climate Change… Science, not Politics
12:00 PM: Running for Office
1:00 PM: Grassroots Lobbying
1:00 PM: Healthy Illinois
2:30 PM: Climate Change … Science, not Politics
2:00 PM: Electoral Strategy & Messaging
3:00 PM: Stay on the Ballot
If you consider yourself a progressive, this is a chance to find active groups in Will County that may interest you.
I don’t know if there will be any space aliens at the fair, but you never know…
