The Chicago Libertarian Party September Monthly Meetup

photoThe Chicago Libertarian Party Meetup Group

If you’re interested in Liberty, you are invited to join us for our Monthly Meetup. Here’s an opportunity to spend an evening with like-minded individuals discussing what’s important to us…freedom!

Every other month we have a business meeting which lasts about an hour, which you’re welcome to attend. After that, and on alternate months, we just get together to talk about what’s going on: in politics, books we’ve read, movies to see, events to attend, and how to spread the word about Liberty.

Hilltop Restaurant is at Foster & California. We’ve got a private room, and there’s free parking available in the lot behind the restaurant.

Attendance is free. You do not have to be a “member” of the Libertarian Party to attend. Bring a friend, even! There is a menu available if you’d like to order food, but they do not sell alcohol. You may BYOB if you’d like. http://www.allmenus.c…

Hope to see you there!

Group Petitioning in Lincoln Park

Come out with us to gather signatures to get our candidates on the ballot in Illinois. We’ll be meeting at the Farmers Market at Armitage and Orchard, in the parking lot of Lincoln Park High School. 

If you’re not so sure about venturing out on your own to ask for signatures, here’s a chance to go out as part of a group. Or, if you’ve been gathering signatures on your own, already, great! Come out and show some beginners how it’s done. 

Please bring your own blank petition forms, pens, and a clipboard, if you’ve got one. Forms and instructions are available for download at:
http://lpillinois.org…

The farmers market goes 7am-1pm every Saturday, but we decided to meet at 10 to reach early and later customers. There’s a good chance we’ll move on toward Lincoln Park Zoo after we’re through the Farmers Market.

Wear a Libertarian Tshirt or button if you can, and RSVP so we know to look for you. Spread the word, and Let’s get out there and do our part!

Petition Drive Fundraiser Concert for Illinois Libertarians

This event isn’t hosted by LP Chicago, but we wanted to spread the word, so we’re reposting it here…it promises to be a fun night!

Come out for an awesome night of fun while helping to get stuff done: meet our candidates and help support the Petition Drive to get them on the ballot in November!!

Jason Kluss will open the night with an acoustic set, and NatureDevil will take over for the later part of the night to rock out and bring the power. Throughout the night, there will be an auction to help raise money that goes straight to the Libertarian Party of Illinois for the Petition Drive. Prizes will be awarded, things will be for sale, and candidates will speak (and perhaps perform?) on stage for everyone. We will also have a notary on site to notarize any petitions you would like to turn in to a Petition Coordinator, who will also be on site. This date falls smack dab in the middle of the Petition Drive, so updates and information will be available to keep everyone updated on how we are doing. More information will be added as details get confirmed, but for now – this is an event you won’t want to miss.

Confirmed guests:
Julie Fox, candidate for Comptroller
Chris Michel, candidate for Secretary of State Alex “AJ” Cummings, candidate for Lt. Governor
Sharon Hansen, candidate for US Senate
For updates to this information, please see the Facebook event at: https://www.facebook….

For more information about the Petition Drive, and how you can help, please see http://lpillinois.org…

Hope to see you there!
