Take back the House Power Hour @ Bassline

Are you ready to take back the House in 2018?

We know that the 2018 elections are critical for getting our country back on the right track. Now, more than ever, we need representatives in Congress who will fight to protect our democracy, our healthcare, our environment, and so much more of what makes America truly great. This means we need Democrats fighting in districts all across the country -- that's why we're excited about Lauren Underwood.

Lauren's life work embodies a commitment to servant-leadership. She has a long track record of successfully expanding access to health care locally and nationally and has seen first-hand the impact limited access to care and reproductive health services can have on communities. In preparing to run, she has developed a bold vision that puts working families first, championing policies that would expand economic opportunities and support continued investment in public education. 

Lauren has chosen to run in her home district, the IL-14, because she believes her chances to win are high. She is the only woman and person of color running in the Democratic primary and, if she wins, would be facing an increasingly unpopular Trump Republican. She can Flipthe14th with your help.

Please join us for a Power Hour to meet and support Lauren Underwood and to invest in a race that will help us win back the House in 2018! To learn more click here.

Fox Valley for Lauren Underwood

Are you ready for a change in our Congressional Leadership?

Families across the Illinois Fourteenth Congressional District deserve a representative who shares important values of family, community, duty, and citizenship.  A representative who is willing to respect all opinions, especially those counter to her own, and seek common ground to develop our shared path forward.  

Our current Representative has ignored outreach from constituents across the district. He has abandoned his promises to preserve access to care and has instead voted in lockstep with the Trump agenda at each turn.  It’s time for new leadership in IL-14.

Join us for an evening with Lauren Underwood. Lauren is eager to meet with and listen to folks from across the 14th to hear your vision for the future of our community. We hope to see you there!
