Reclaim NW Suburbs will be holding an event, "Reclaim NW Suburbs Visioning Forum: The Community Speaks", on Monday, June 24, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, 500 N. Dunton Avenue, Arlington Heights.
The event is for community members to speak their minds on the issues that are important to them. There will be discussion on how to build power to make change in their communities. The information gleaned from the meeting will be used to develop a report that will be followed for years to come in tackling these issues and working with elected officials.
Among the many topics open for discussion are public education, transportation, workers' rights, economic development, healthcare, housing, social services, police accountability, food security, the environment, public space, inclusiveness, and government accountability and accessibility.

Reclaim Chicago and its suburban chapters including Reclaim NW Suburbs are supported by The People's Lobby and National Nurses United, the largest union and professional association of RNs in U.S. history. Reclaim NW Suburbs follows The People's Lobby's mission of supporting public policies and candidates that put the needs of people ahead of big corporations and the powerful elite. This is done through pushes for legislation and fair budgets, educating people on policy, leadership training, and supporting grassroots movements and candidates that represent its values. Reclaim NW Suburbs applies this mission to the issues and needs of the northwest suburbs on such topics as increasing the minimum wage, affordable housing, and encouraging democratic processes in local government.
