Illinois Political Leaders Visit


Lipinski-Dan-OLCHSSenior Adem Osmani wrote a letter to both Congressman Dan Lipinski and U.S. Senator Dick Durbin requesting that they come to Oak Lawn Community High School.  

Adem wrote the leaders in response to the student-driven March for Our Lives gun control walkout on May 14, 2018.  Both leaders acquiesced, and town-hall style meetings took place, led by Adem.

Adem moderated questions submitted from the students.  Alexandria McGlynn assisted in the Lipinski Town Hall and Oak Lawn Mayor Sandra Bury assisted in the Durbin Town Hall.  Adem said, "I just felt like we needed to take some action and a lot of us wanted answers, so I decided, why not reach out to the senator and try to get some answers?"
