The in box. North suburb forum and rally on pension justice.

From Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice:
The Daily Herald and a billionaire funded, for-profit media site (called Reboot Illinois) are holding a Pension Forum at Harper’s Wojcik Conference Center next Wednesday on April 24th from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.  Speakers include State Rep. Elaine Nekritz of Northbrook (sponsor of a key pension cutting measure, HB 3411), State Rep. Tom Morrison of Palatine, and Cinda Klickna, president of the Illinois Education Association.
Prior to the pension forum, the Harper College Chapter of Local 1600 is working with Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice to hold a rally outside the Wojcik center from 5:00-6:45 pm on Wednesday April 24th.  The address for both events is the Harper College campus, 1200 West Algonquin rd. in Palatine, 60067.
Please RSVP for the rally so we can communicate a crowd estimate to campus police.
There is ample parking for the rally and forum. (please see attached map)  If you want to attend the actual forum, you have to RSVP to the Daily Herald by  Seating within Wojcik is limited to 250 people and seats are disappearing fast.  There will be plenty of room at the rally for everyone involved.
Retired teacher and blogger, Fred Klonsky and other outspoken educators will share their views and alternative solutions on the pension issue.  The primary purpose of the rally is to give you and other educators a voice in the pension discussion before Springfield lawmakers vote on HB 3411, or other dramatic pension cuts.  After a few slated speakers, we will have an open microphone for anyone who wishes to share his or her opinion before going into the event and sharing that opinion with Nekritz.  Believe me, Nekritz still hasn’t gotten the message.  She is simply carrying water for the Civic Committee and Mike Madigan.
Show your support for fair pensions!  Wear Red Attire on April 24th and RSVP to attend the Rally at 5pm in Front of Wojcik Conference Center
