Clean the House Event with
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky

Host: Committee of 100 (former IL Kerry Travelers)
Location: Prairie Moon Restaurant (back room)

When: Sunday, June 11, 5:00pm
Hello Dems!

We've been waiting four long years -- and now it's time to use our collective power to take back the House!

We can do it. We did it in Wisconsin for John Kerry in '04. Wisconsin was one of Karl Rove's prime targets for a Bush victory, after losing the state by only 5000 votes in '00. But we put 2000 Illinois volunteers over the border on the ground, and won -- more than doubling the previous margin of victory. Wisconsin organizers said they couldn't have done it without us.

By pooling our efforts, we can tip the balance. The time is ripe to take the House, but it won't happen unless we work for it - just as hard as the Republicans will work at preventing it. We're targeting three Illinois Republican seats and defending one hard-won Democratic seat (with Rove's number-1 bulls-eye on it). How would it feel to deliver, from Illinois alone, 20 percent of the seats we need to gain a House majority?

We need you! Please come to a free meeting June 11th to get revved up. Jan Schakowsky will headline, and representatives of the four local Democratic Congressional candidates we're backing will be there, too. We'll review our strategy and have sign-up sheets ready to go, if you want to get active right away (canvassing, phone calls, whatever you can do).

The meeting is free, and drinks / food will be available from the bar.

Sunday, June 11, 4:30pm
Prairie Moon Restaurant (back room)
1502 Sherman Ave., Evanston

Please RSVP to this invite and be sure to tell your friends. If you need more info contact me Sue Schell at

Look forward to seeing you in June. Let's clean the House!
