The Lake County Republican Federation invites you to join us for an evening of lively and captivating discussion regarding the political future of our county, state and nation.
Co-sponsors include the Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest/Lake Bluff and Fairer America.

A number of activists will be sharing their efforts to preserve and extol free-market principles and democracy. For example, Matt Paprocki of the Illinois Policy Institute will speak on how it generates public policy solutions aimed at promoting personal freedom and prosperity in Illinois. Fairer America’s Julie Cho will discuss efforts to educate, empower and involve ethnic communities through free market and free enterprise principles. The keynote presentation will be provided by “Wide Awake,” featuring Young Americans Against Socialism founder, Morgan Zegers. It will be a great opportunity to explore the current efforts being made throughout this county, state and nation and meet like-minded people ready for a change.
