Illinois Greens to march in PRIDE Parade

A note from Green Party member Erika Schafer:

I wanted to send a quick email to let everyone know that the Illinois Green Party has reserved its spot in the Chicago Pride Parade on Sunday, June 26. From personal experience, this event draws the largest Green-friendly audience and provides the warmest receptivity towards ILGP of any event in the state. It’s a ton of fun, and doesn’t ask much from our volunteers.

If you are willing and available to march with us from 11:00 p.m. – 4 p.m., please send me an email ( so I can begin to tally the volunteer count. Please pass the word to other ILGP members/sympathizers who might join our Pride presence. More information is coming soon, along with a Facebook event so you can invite your Facebook friends and post on your wall.

Please let me know ASAP if you are going to march with us, or if you are willing to provide a financial contribution to help fund volunteer flare and/or crowd giveaways.
