An Evening of Social Justice Songs and Pizza   

Trump Dumps on his Loyal Chumps

Shouldn’t All Working People Earn a Living Wage?

 

Don’t Be Terrified; Send a Message

By Prajnaa Jain

With so much anxiety being felt by millions of Americans as a result of what has been happening in Washington, D.C., Tenth Dems created a whole new new line of buttons that give voice to those feelings. And they’re available for sale at our events and on line.

“A Special Kind of Energy”

By Marci Jacobs and Neesa Sweet

On July 19, nearly 300 gathered to honor the individuals who took the big step of putting themselves forward to run in this year’s elections and the volunteers who helped them.  Jason Kander, former Missouri Secretary of State, 2016 candidate for Senate, and founder of Let America vote, inspired all with his keynote address.

An Evening of Social Justice Songs and Pizza

A night of food, drink, and song awaits everyone who attends this August 5 event in Gurnee.   

Trump Dumps on his Loyal Chumps

By Steven Gan

There are no boundaries to Donald Trump’s bullying and disrespect, as supporters like “beleaguered” Attorney General Jeff Sessions are now learning.

Shouldn’t All Working People Earn a Living Wage?

By Herb Brenner

There are so many socio-economic issues needing to be addressed in this country, among them the minimum wage. What are the real numbers and what impact do they have on real people? And what is being done locally?

 

In case you missed this special evening (or even if you attended!) …

2017 Literary Edition

Friends,

Our 7th Annual Poetry and Prose Contest Awards Night was a special evening–area high school students read their original works on the theme of Service, and they were joined at the microphone by some of the professional writers who judged the contest. These young writers were amazing! See for yourself–this special edition of Tenth News has all 12 award-winning poems, essays, and stories, as well as a photo album from the event.

There’s a good chance you’ll be moved by the talent and sensitivity of the young students from North Chicago, Waukegan, and Zion who participated in this year’s contest.

Enjoy!
