Raise Up IL – Lobby Day Text + Phone Bank @ Zoom
May 5 @ 5:15 pm – 7:00 pm
Registration linkbit.ly/raiseuplobbyday
Facebook event: https://fb.me/e/3hHYOHcqd
We have five weeks until the budget passes, and we need Springfield to know we want long-term investments in our community! Join us in our efforts to lobby state legislators to make sure they pass the Raise Up IL package.

The Raise Up IL coalition has introduced a package of bills that would generate billions of dollars in revenue by ending tax breaks for big corporations and ultra-wealthy individuals — and we’re demanding this revenue be used to fund expanded childcare, the Community Care Program for seniors, K-12 education, immigrant support services, tax relief for working people, and affordable housing.
