We Stand with State Workers in Illinois!

Yesterday (Tuesday, Oct  18th) , West Suburban activists, including some members of Fox Valley Citizens for Peace and Justice,  and our allied organization Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice, united to call on Sen. Oberweis and Rep. Wheeler to stand with their constituents, not Governor Rauner’s anti-family, anti-worker agenda.We heard testimony about social service providers who are on the brink of closing and called for a fair budget with new revenue!

We will continue our fight tomorrow calling on Senate Republican Leader Christine Radagno to do the right thing for all Illinoisans by passing a budget with progressive revenue solutions in the veto session. Join us!
