Two Additional ISRA Grassroots Groups!

Getting CCW in Illinois was not the end of the road, but a new beginning.

ISRA members need to remain vigilant and need the opportunity to meet with their peers for strategy, information sharing and camaraderie!

ISRA Grassroots groups are continusing to form around the state, with the addition of two groups in the Chicago metro area in September and October.. Meetings are intended to be held monthly and will start at 7:00 pm on a weeknight, and are scheduled for one hour.

What can you expect at an ISRA Grassroots meeting? You would find items of interest in your area, with guest speakers, legislative updates, open discussion and more. While the initial roll-out of the meetings might be similar, expect the grassroots group in your area to evolve to be more meaningful to the people in attendance.

These new meetings are:

There is no charge to attend, but because these meeting places have limited space, members are asked to RSVP to indicate that they will attend, so that we don't overwhelm the hospitality of our hosts.

If you are in one of the two areas listed above, please try to attend the initial meeting. Please do not contact the locations above about the meeting. Please RSVP on-line or for more info send email to "grassroots@isra.org".

If your area is not listed here in this message, don't despair! More locations are being added, with meetings expected soon in Chicago in Pilsen/Little Village, with other places around the metro area and the state soon!
