Illinois gubernatorial candidate Alderman Ameya Pawar
hosting a statewide virtual town hall on June 15

CHICAGO — Ameya Pawar, 47th Ward Alderman and Democratic candidate for Illinois governor, will be hosting a virtual town hall on Thursday, June 15, bringing his vision of a New Deal for Illinois to voters via livestream to watch parties all over the state.
The event is designed to bring together community residents – regardless of their political leanings – to get to know Ameya and his platform, and to have the kinds of conversations about solutions to the critical issues facing our state that no longer seem possible in our highly partisan world.
On June 15, Pawar will host a discussion followed by a Q&A with voters at a venue in Illinois. Watch party viewers will be able to participate by submitting questions beforehand or during the live Q&A, and are encouraged to continue the conversation once the livestream has ended. Viewers can follow and participate using the hashtags #Pawar2018 and #AskAmeya.
Watch parties will be hosted by supporters in local communities. Some hosts are welcoming their neighbors into their homes, while others are partnering with local organizations and gathering larger groups at businesses, churches and public meeting spaces.
More than 200 volunteers on regional teams are facilitating the creation of watch parties in communities across the state. A digital support team will provide hosts with logistical and technology assistance. Those who are interested in hosting or attending should visit
Pawar was first elected to public office in 2011, beating the Chicago machine by knocking on every door in his ward. He feels a virtual town hall is an opportunity to engage with voters across Illinois, as well as to promote civic and community engagement in hopes of people discovering we have more in common than we think.
WHEN:       Thursday, June 15
                   Livestream starts at 7:30 p.m.
WHERE:    Watch parties across Illinois
