CAIR-Chicago Hosts "Bridging the Gap" in Efforts to Bring Together Reps and Constituents


On Monday, August 5th, CAIR-Chicago hosted ‘Bridging the Gap: Conversations Between Politicians and People.’ 

The Bridging the Gap event brought together representatives and their constituents from the state of Illinois. In attendance we had a Representative from the Illinois House and a representative from the office of a state Senator. After a brief introduction from the panel, members from the community engaged in a riveting conversation with the politicians. 

Throughout the evening, topics that were discussed included the criminal justice system, immigration, and civic engagement. Participants were encouraged to continue working with their legislators to be involved in the political process. We hope to hold another panel in the near future where members of all levels of government are able to engage with their constituents.
