public service challenge

The 2020-2021 Public Service Challenge (PSC) is on! PSC is a non-partisan training offered each election cycle to support and educate ANY interested individual who is looking to run for a city office or the school board.

This community-wide team effort is being supported by ECF, Evanston/North Shore Chapter of the NAACP, the League of Women Voters, Evanston Latinos, the Evanston/Skokie PTA Council, and ETHS Parents Engaged.

why is this important?

In April 2021, Evanston will elect a mayor, city clerk, and all nine aldermen, as well as four members of both District 65 and 202. The Public Service Challenge, in collaboration with community partners, has been formed to encourage local residents to run for office or to be engaged in local campaigns. This is an opportunity for your voice to be heard!
