Tea Parties began as a national, grassroots movement to foster respect for our nation’s Constitution and to encourage greater citizen participation in and control over government. Town hall meetings provide citizens with information on and discussion of important issues that will affect their lives. Northern Illinois is one of more than 50 member organizations affiliated with the statewide Illinois Tea Party.
