Illinois Policy Institute talk by David Amerson

Join us Oct 24th at 6PM at room 213 at Gregory Hall to hear David Amerson discuss the Illinois Policy Institute. The People's Agenda is pleased to co-host this event with the Illini Democrats.

A seemingly independent think tank has been secretly amassing power in Springfield for the past 10 years. Their targets: state universities, unions, voting rights, progressive politicians, and the middle class. Their influence now extends from our local newspapers all the way to the highest echelons of state power. 

Who is the Illinois Policy Institute? What are their sources of funding and what are their plans for turning Illinois into a red state? Learn about how this think tank operates, their tactics, their secretive donors, and what their next steps are at the Capitol.
