OPCTJ is a group of concerned citizens from Oak Park and the surrounding communities who gathered in response to the attacks of September 11th and our nation’s mobilization for war. We meet in an effort to:
We are local people who care deeply about our country and urge our fellow citizens to be true to American ideals of freedom, justice, and democracy. OPCTJ wishes to build bridges to other local groups and individuals, and invites you to participate in our work.
Join us alternate months on the second Thursday (next meeting: September 12), 7:15-9:00, at the second floor book discussion room, Oak Park Pubic Library, 834 Lake Street, Oak Park. Check our website (www.opctj.org) for other activities.Film Series: We show topical films several times per year at the Oak Park Library.
Living Wage in Oak Park Campaign: We are working to have the Village Board pass a resolution authoring that a living wage be paid to a) village employees, b) contractors hired by the village, and 3) business and individuals who receive a substantial grant from the village.
You're welcome to join us. Check this space for the listing of the next meeting. We try to keep general meetings short and work out details at project committee meetings.
Look for us in the fall.
