In addition to live music, comedy and surprise special guests, Indivisible Chicago will announce its new “‘3 States, 1 Mission” 2020 campaign. Group leaders will reveal plans to win back Wisconsin and Michigan and hold on to progressive gains already made in Illinois. Volunteer sign-ups will take place in the theater lobby before and after the show.

Indivisible Chicago is a local coalition of a dozen community-based chapters formed after the 2016 election. In the 2018 midterms, Indivisible Chicago helped Democratic candidates Lauren Underwood and Sean Casten win their tightly contested suburban races for Congress with volunteer canvassing trips, phone banks and postcard parties.
