March to Springfield Kickoff Event
May 15, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us in downtown Chicago for the March to Springfield kickoff event! We will be gathering at the Thompson Center at noon to celebrate the dedication of our through-marchers as they begin their 200-mile journey to Springfield. There will be live music, the chance to hear from our through-marchers about their stories, and a send-off event.
Finally, if you’re able, you can join the marchers for the first day of the march. We will leave from the Thompson Center at 1 p.m. and march the first 7.5 miles of the journey. Come be a part of the March to Springfield for a People and Planet First Budget!
