After the opening plenary, stick around for an opening reception sponsored by Black Male Voter Project! After a busy day of panels and training sessions, connect with old and new friends as you power up with appetizers and drinks.
During the reception, Mayor Brandon Johnson will act as a ‘Server for An Hour’ in solidarity with Chicago’s tipped workers and One Fair Wage. The Mayor is supportive of a bill being led by Alderman Carlos Ramirez- Rosa that would require restaurants to pay tipped workers a full minimum wage with tips on top, rather than the sub-minimum wage for tipped workers.
