2018 was a fantastic year for the DPOE, Democrats in Illinois and across the nation, We got rid of Bruce Rauner and elected Democrats up and down the ticket. In 2019 we broke in the new office with a slew of activities including training sessions, phone banks, movie nights, debate watch parties, canvasses and student led events. We launched the Schakowsky Campaign Organizer School, hosted our Big Tent Event, and held our second Student Led Forum about hate speech.

Our goal for 2020 is to do as much work as possible so that Democrats win up and down the ticket across the Midwest. We are so grateful for your support, which powers our work. Thank you!
