As we seek opportunities to help our nation through this trying time, pushing back on limitations to voting rights must come first – followed by helping to overcome any such limitations that are eventually put in place.
Right now they are pursuing phone banking targeting several states, most noticeably voting rights in Texas and supporting HR1/S1 in Arizona.
Initially we are helping with the Arizona phone banking effort every Thursday afternoon. We need more volunteers for that effort – and with even more help, we could expand to working the issues in Texas as well.
If you need help getting started, please contact Ed.Spire@nonconfundar.org and he will assist you.
This is something YOU can do to help your nation through this important struggle for democracyGun Violence Prevention Issues Team July Meeting
Thursday, July 15, 7:00 P
There are no words to adequately respond to the tragic death of George Floyd and to the 1000 other individuals who have lost their lives to police violence in 2020.
As a Gun Violence Prevention Issues Team, we stand in solidarity with those engaged in peaceful protests and with those calling for comprehensive police reform and an end to police violence and an end to systemic racism.
We also celebrate the fact that Gov. Pritzker signed, in January 2019, the law that requires a certification process for gun dealers in Illinois. We know from the research that this law will definitely help to save lives, including the lives of our police officers everywhere.

Monday. July 19Time: 7 p.m.- 8 p.m.
It’s hard to make property assessments sexy.But if we are serious about addressing equity issues, we need to talk about property assessments, and the structural iniquities that have been built into the assessments–and how the current Board of (Tax) Appeals is still protecting those iniquities. We all like talking about addressing structural racism and iniquity–but the real work of funding progressive government happens with the tax assessments.
If anyone can make property assessments fascinating it is Cook County Assessor, Fritz Kaegi. And it’s because progressive government is possible when property assessments are fair. Come learn from Assessor Kaegi about the important work his office is doing to bring equity and justice to the Assessor’s office, how that progress is under threat, and what we can do about it.

The US is currently in the deepest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930’s with 7.4 million fewer jobs than last February as of the May employment report.
While the recovery faltered at the end of 2020, it has been regaining momentum this year after passage of $900 billion in assistance in December and another $1.9 trillion this year. Job gains in February (536,000), March (785,000), April (278,000), and May (559,000) were an improvement over the job losses of 306,000 in December.
It should be noted that all of these numbers are AFTER seasonal adjustments. Before seasonal adjustments the US added over one million jobs in each month February through April and almost one million in May.
We will also discuss inflation and why the numbers so far don’t look troublesome, as well as forecasts for future GDP growth and inflation.
