The ACLU Lunch: Fighting For A More Perfect Union

March 24, 2023 @ 11:00 am 1:00 pm

Please join the ACLU of Illinois for our annual Lunch on Friday, March 24, 2023 at 12:00 PM. This will be a hybrid event with in person and virtual programming. We will welcome guests in person at the Hilton Chicago, while a virtual audience will tune in through a livestream. Whether participants join us virtually or in person, everyone will be able to view the program in its entirety.

We are excited to gather together again, with members of the ACLU community from across Illinois to celebrate the ongoing work to protect and advance civil rights and liberties. Please note that in person capacity at the Hilton Chicago will be limited this year. We encourage you to purchase your tickets or sponsorship as soon as possible!
