We did it, ya’ll — we made it through our first-ever Election Day in Chicago as JCUA Votes!
Last night, after months of organizing, we saw the fruits of our hard work, as JCUA Votes candidates for alderperson and District Councils won huge victories across the city!
But our work is not over. We’ve got five more weeks of organizing ahead of us before the April 4 runoff, which will determine the future of Chicago. We need your support to push JCUA Votes and our candidates to victory.
When we organize, we win!
