On Sunday, March 1, 2009, citizens of Evanston, a north Chicago suburb, gathered at the Levy Center to discuss and focus on issues of energy, education and healthcare. Civil justice attorney Robert Kreisman facilitated as a group leader on healthcare.
The impetus behind the meeting was to promote ideas from the citizenry of this north Cook County area on local, state and national movements to improve the status of healthcare eligibility and coverage. The attendees were divided into small discussion groups that focused on different topics.
Also discussed was the pressing need to abandon reliance on foreign oil and to develop green energy projects. More than 150 enthusiastic and motivated participants were on hand for this first of several events centered on these subjects.
The Democratic Party of Evanston sponsored the event.
