With a crowded race of Democrats who are all vying to become the party’s nominee for the 2020 presidential race, Elizabeth Warren has launched herself to the front of the pack. In a busy tour of American cities and towns Warren will make a stop in Edgewater for a meet-and-greet event.

With hopes of Warren’s team to continue movement towards the 2020 elections, Warren has scheduled a stop at the Broadway Armory (5917 N Broadway) in Edgewater on Nov. 30. Serving as a senior United States Senator from Massachusetts since 2013, Warren’s campaign says that it focuses on fighting corruption and putting political and economic power back into the hands of the people.

“Elizabeth knows that to create real change—to rebuild the middle class and save our democracy—we need to dream big and fight hard,” said the the Illinois for Warren team on their website. “That’s why she’s in this fight: to have a real conversation about how to level the playing field for working families, and who is best to lead that fight.”

Warren joins a long list of people who have visited Edgewater in recent years that help shape American politics. In August, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor visited Senn High School and both Hillary Clinton and President Jimmy Carter made book signing appearances at Women and Children First bookstore in recent years.

Though the free event Nov. 30 is open to the public and requires no tickets, the Warren team strongly suggests those who wish to attend to RSVP. It will be first come, first serve and those with accessibility needs should email Illinois@ElizabethWarren.com with the subject line “Accessibility Needs” so they may be accommodated. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and the town hall meeting will start at 6:15 p.m. ending around 8 p.m.
