Illinois for Bernie People’s Convention

Join hundreds of Bernie supporters from across the state as they converge for the 4 year anniversary of the first IL4B convention back in 2015. You will rally with a dynamic group of activists, participate in breakout groups that will be the impetus for later organizing work, and much more. And, best of all, you will get to spend the day building power with like-minded Illinoisans!


PLEASE NOTE: Sen. Bernie Sanders will NOT be in attendance.

SPEAKERS: Brand New Congress endorsed candidate and star of the documentary 'Knock Down the House,' Cori Bush, and others TBA!
