How To Sell Off a City: In These Times Issue Release Party feat. Rick Perlstein on Chicago’s Elections

January 22, 2015 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

In These Times

2040 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL

Join In These Times to celebrate the release of our February 2015 issue, featuring “How to Sell Off a City” by Rick Perlstein: A damning look at the privatization policies carried out under Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his predecessor Richard J. Daley, both of whom systematically sold city assets and services to far-off corporations looking to turn a profit.

Our special issue on the Chicago mayoral election also includes David Moberg’s analysis of why unions aren’t lining up against Rahm Emanuel–despite the mayor’s union-busting record. And Salim Muwakkil discusses the challenges to assembling a black-brown coalition behind Jesus “Chuy” Garcia.

Rick Perlstein, David Moberg and Salim Muwakkil will speak, along with other In These Times contributors. And you’ll be hanging out right smack in the middle of ITT’s office headquarters.

Complimentary beer from Revolution Brewing.
