CTU, SEIU, community allies to join Brandon Johnson in honoring MLK — and to advance Dr. King’s call for economic and social justice

CTU members will join fellow trade unionists, mayoral candidate Brandon Johnson and progressive champions from across the city at 10 a.m. on Monday, January 16 to celebrate the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on MLK Day. After the rally, which is being held at CTU headquarters at 1901 W. Carroll, participants will fan out for door-to-door canvasing, phone banking and more for progressive candidates — including Brandon — seeking election to City Hall in the February 28 election.

New poll shows Brandon is winning! Plus: MLK Day Rally and Day of Action on 1/16/23

Chicago media outlets are this morning reporting on a new independent poll that shows CTU-endorsed candidate Brandon Johnson tied for first place with Chuy Garcia, while Lori Lightfoot gets less than half the support of either of the front runners. These new poll numbers reflect the CTU’s effectiveness in advancing Brandon’s campaign working in collaboration with United Working Families, broader communities, and of course the grassroots efforts of hundreds and hundreds of CTU members. We can do this!
