The Illinois Policy Institute has long worked to give taxpayers and liberty ideas a voice in the conversation of government. Join us for a special evening with Ham and Benson to discuss how conservatives can continue to take back the moral high ground from the left.

Douglas Park in Chicago, IL

Team Patlak Republicans is standing up for Veterans who have protected our nation.

A Safe Haven Foundation is an organization based in Chicago which assists homeless people, especially veterans who may be suffering from the many causes of homelessness including various addictions. A Safe Haven Foundation assists in recovery and rehabilitation so that these men and women who have served our country can be brought back to full participation as engaged citizens.

For many years, Commissioner Dan Patlak has been concerned about the plight of returning veterans who have given so much to ensure our freedom and safety, and yet have difficulty assimilating back home. Here is an event I participate in to help this important cause, and I ask you to join my team.

Sunday, July 12, 8 am at Douglas Park.

Thank you in advance for supporting our Veterans in Need!
