Kickoff: Advocacy Task Force

  • Jerry’s Sandwiches 5419 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60640 United States (map)

Our discussion will take place from 7-8:30, but if you like, come by at 6 to purchase a sandwich and a beer, and for some conversation.

One important role of grassroots groups like CAS is advocacy. We’re working on some big local issues like our Bird-Friendly Design Ordinance, and protection of Montrose Beach. And we raise awareness about important state and federal bird conservation and climate issues.

We want to do more of this, and more effectively, with more of our members. All are welcome to our advocacy task force kickoff. Task force co-chairs and some CAS board members will be on hand to help organize our efforts to select and elevate key issues and build relationships with elected officials. We invite you to help us start a new phase of this interesting and satisfying work.
