The campaign recently hosted an open house for residents of the Pilsen, UIC, University Village Tri-Taylor, and Little Village neighborhoods of the near west side of Chicago.
Over 50 supporters learned how they could contribute to the president’s re-election campaign. Speaking to a full room, community organizer Adrian Sirdar stressed the importance of the grassroots aspect of the campaign.
"Our strength lies in our one-on-one connection with people. The power of the personal touch we make this election with voters in battleground states like Iowa, Wisconsin and Florida is what will lead us to a win in November."
The event also gave existing neighborhood team members an opportunity to share their positive experiences working on the campaign. They then turned over the floor for a brief Q&A session in which attendees asked questions about strategy, fund-raising, and other critical key aspects of the campaign.
At the end of the event, over twenty additional volunteers had committed to contributing their skills to the campaign. Join them by finding an event in your neighborhood today!
