A Converstaion With Gubernatorial Candidates & Directly Impacted Community Members

Hard Lens Media will be live streaming this event.

As the March 2018 primaries in Illinois approach, the question arises, "How will our locally elected officials support undocumented residents in Illinois?" Join us on Monday, March 12, 2018 to hear the candidates for governor speak about possible policies which can be implemented at a local level, so as to offer protection to our undocumented communities. The event will consist of two, 45 minute panels.

- The initial 45 minute panel is comprised of IL Gubernatorial candidates. The candidates will share their plans and ideas regarding policies to protect undocumented community members.

- The second 45 minute panel will allow directly-impacted folks to share their stories and offer solutions to the DACA issue, and share some ways in which our locally elected officials can offer some protection.

- Both panels will be moderated by Protection for All Movement members and directly-impacted folks.

Candidates Confirmed: Daniel Biss, Tio Hardiman, Bob Daiber, and Dr. Robert Marshall

Candidates Invited: J.B. Pritzker, Chris Kennedy, Bruce Rauner, and Jeanne Ives
