Mark your calendars for our second annual People’s Gala on Friday, October 11th. Come join us and over 200 members of the Chicago progressive activist community for an evening to celebrate our past years’ victories, and to re-energize and find inspiration for the work ahead.

We hope you will join us this year in sharing appreciations, saying thank you and recognizing the bold leadership of our 2019 Honorees by coming out and supporting them! Your support will directly help raise critical funds to advance the work of the Collaborative in the coming year, training and mobilizing leaders for our movement for racial and economic justice in Illinois.

We are so thrilled to be recognizing the following outstanding movement leaders, organizers and our special recognition this year of the hundreds of bold striking union members from across a variety of industries, including:union musicians, teachers, nursing aides, graduate student workers, hotel workers, and garment workers who took to the picket line and won big, building power for Illinois working families!
