We are a volunteer group of your DuPage county neighbors who share progressive values

Join our efforts to bring better government to our county, state, and nation
Each Thursday between now and the November 3rd election we will be working with a different progressive group to help make a difference.
Click here to join us October 22 from 5 - 7 pm when we will be working to help elect Jaime Harrison to the U.S. Senate.
For a lot of people, Senator Lindsey Graham is the living embodiment of why they despise politicians. They don't see Lindsey as a principled conservative, they see him as a shameless hypocrite who will say or do anything to remain on the public payroll.
Both the Nation and South Carolina deserve better. They need a Senator who has the leadership skills and talent to effectively represent all the citizens of their state. They've found that person in Jaime Harrison.
Who is Jaime Harrison?
The son of a single teenage mom, and raised by his grandparents in Orangeburg, South Carolina, Jaime overcame the challenges of grinding poverty with the help of teachers and mentors who believed in him. From a mobile home to Yale University and Georgetown Law, Jaime never forgot who he was or where he came from.
Now, Jaime is running for U.S. Senate to fight for opportunity for all South Carolinians. Leveraging a compelling personal story with commanding debate performances, the latest polls show Jaime running neck in neck with Senator Graham. Click here to help his campaign by phone banking or here to text bank at our Thursday event.
As you know, the election on November 3rd will determine the direction our country takes. The choice before us could not be more stark and the outcome more grave. What happens will affect generations to come.
Please make a list of friends and family and encourage them to vote. Our future and America's standing in the world depends on it.

The author of How the Right Lost Its Mind was particularly scornful of politicians who abandon their principles and enable a President who seems at odds with everything the Party of Lincoln once stood for.
