Since Lori entered this race six months ago, she’s spoken at community meetings and candidate forums. Team Lightfoot has joined parades, festivals, marches, and rallies. We’ve held press conferences, hosted meet and greets, and released detailed policy proposals on the tough challenges facing our city.

With just 100 days until Election Day, we’ve got so much to look forward to—more opportunities to meet Chicagoans at neighborhood events and community meetings, more policy areas to discuss with issue experts and advocacy groups, and more of those unexpected chances to learn, listen, and connect that have made these last six months so special. But before we get started on all of that, we’re taking a moment to look back at where we’ve been by celebrating 100 of our favorite campaign moments.

To everyone who has been a part of this campaign, thank you! And to everyone who wants to join in these last 100 days, welcome to our team! You can sign up here to get involved.
