Today marks the end of our first month on the campaign trail---as well as our first fundraising deadline. To say it has been a whirlwind would be an understatement, but it has also been a humbling experience to receive such an outpouring of support from our community.
June was a busy month that included our formal announcement on the 8th, our Kickoff Event, a write-up in the POLITICO IL Playbook, reaching out to old and new friends to get the word out, and a big push for early financial support.
Kickoff Event at Oz Park
Thank you to all who came out to Hoan's Campaign Kickoff Event! We were delighted to see so many friendly faces. Hoan spoke about the importance of investing in community solutions to solve our most pressing challenges, from the gun violence epidemic to supporting small businesses to climate change.
To our friends, family, and community members who have been spreading the word about this campaign, thank you. This movement is about pushing progressive values in Congress so that we may all enjoy a more fair and equitable future.
