Dash for Democracy Live Stream Event
Saturday, September 16th, 5:00 PM EDT
This event will be livestreamed on our Givebutter page: https://givebutter.com/fairvoteIL
Our Dash for Democracy live stream event gives us an opportunity to come together to celebrate democracy, hear great music in the Battle of the Bands (with the winner selected using ranked choice voting), game show elements, prizes, and more. It's a great way to plug in and connect with likeminded people.
Dash for Democracy is all about celebrating American democracy. Simple as that. From September 11 to 17, 2023, join us for a week of fun and purpose. Tune in to our live Band Together for Democracy program, participate in a virtual 5k (you can move through it however you want!), attend our Democracy Dialogues virtual speakers series, meet up with friends, or create art inspired by democracy. It's about doing our part without the political noise. Love of country, constitution, and democracy is what unites us. Team up with us, raise funds, and make a difference. Every dollar goes to pro-democracy organizations. Let's dash! For democracy, for community, for us.
Band Together for Democracy is our live-streamed capstone celebration of American Democracy.
