Roskam Homecoming: Hosted by Friends Who March

Indivisible Glen Ellyn got word that Peter Roskam will be speaking at the Glen Ellyn Civic Center (535 Duane St, Glen Ellyn, IL ) at 8 a.m.. They are planning on holding a mock homecoming at the same time to draw attention to his absence from the district and unwillingness to speak to his constituents. I'm sure there will be the opportunity to chant about him taking away healthcare etc. as well.

We're so happy you're interested in joining us to welcome Peter home. However, we are trying to do something very different other than standing outside with signs and chanting: we want to get his attention and draw the media's attention by doing something different using humor. 

Here is an essay about our approach from Huffington Post. We are going to use signs that say: HAVE A HEART, PETER: PRESERVE THE ACA. We are trying to get a unified message across and stick to being "on brand" when we show up on Monday.
