Busy Beaver Button Co. (3407 W. Armitage Ave.) is hosting a button making party until 8 p.m. tonight for Logan Square residents to make pins ahead of the Chicago Women’s March this weekend.
Adults and kids alike are invited to create free pins to demonstrate their support. With free pizza and a chance to check out the eclectic and expansive button collection—and how they are made—the event has created a packed room in the museum staple of the community and is socializing the neighborhood through arts and political engagement. Check out photos below of the event and learn about upcoming Busy Beaver Button Co. events on the company’s Facebook page.
The Chicago “March to the Polls” event takes place this Saturday, Jan. 20, to celebrate the success of the 2017 Women’s March and to raise awareness for the 2018 local, mid-term and gubernatorial elections. Learn more about the Chicago Women’s March by visiting womensmarchchicago.org; you can even make your own march button with the official logo if you plan to participate this weekend!
