“The Facts about the SAFE-T Act, Amendment 1, and Other Issues Facing Voters on Election Day”

November 2, 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Mallinckrodt 

Will the SAFE-T Act (in place starting Jan 1, 2023) make Illinois more safe or more violent? What can be done about it?

Is Amendment 1 – also being called the Workers’ Rights Amendment — about “workers’ rights,” or granting unparalleled power to government unions? 

How can people cut through the spin and cast informed votes November 8th?  

Join New Trier Neighbors and Wirepoints experts November 2 in the Meskill Room at the Mallinckrodt Center (1041A Ridge Road, Wilmette) from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. Wirepoints’ Ted Dabrowski, Mark Glennon and Matt Rosenberg will sift through the details of these and other issues on the ballot.  Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served. 

Tickets available here.  Open to all but space is limited – get your tickets today!

Also read this recent piece by Wirepoints on the SAFE-T Act, this Amendment 1 website, and today’s WSJ’s op-ed about Amendment 1

An Evening with Deirdre McCloskey

Thank you to all who filled the house at The Bottle Shop on June 27 to welcome Deirdre McCloskey, Distinguished Professor of Economics, History, English, and Communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who shared her thoughts on freedom and innovation which as she said has made “everyone in this room wealthier than their ancestors.” Her latest book “Leave Me Alone and I’ll Make You Rich” says it all. 
You can read more about Professor McCloskey’s work here.

Identity Politics: The Challenge of Our Time w/ Josh Mitchell and Dan Proft

Professor Josh Mitchell of Georgetown University spoke to a sold-out crowd on the growing danger of identity politics on March 15 at NTN Board member Betsy Hart’s Wilmette home.  Radio Host Dan Proft moderated the discussion and the sold-out event barely even allowed for standing room! We were especially excited to have so many new faces join us including students, faculty, and staff from Northwestern University.

We are sorry we couldn’t accommodate everyone on the waitlist, but if you want a good sense of what Professor Mitchell discussed, you can find out by purchasing his book, “American Awakening: Identity Politics and Other Afflictions of Our Time.”

FAIR Illinois Holiday Party with Ted Dabrowski interviewing Dr. Jason Hill on his new book!
