Indivisible Aurora will receive the Human Rights Campaign ( HRC ) Chicago Community Leadership Award at the 2018 HRC Chicago Gala and Auction on Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile, starting at 6 p.m.
Founded fewer than two years ago by Executive Director Chuck Adams, Indivisible Aurora has swiftly become a progressive advocate for historically marginalized communities in the city of Aurora. With four Action Teams in place ( Education and Community, Gender Equity, Immigrant and Refugee Rights, and LGBTQ+ and Alliance ), Indivisible Aurora aims to address the issues affecting the community and its residents.
The night will begin with a VIP reception followed by the silent auction and main dinner event. The event has an array of speakers each year, with past appearances from former Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, marriage-equality plaintiff Jim Obergefell and ex-NFL player Michael Sam.
