We Need You.

LOL Illinois will only get louder as more people spread the word.

Everyone has a story to tell.

It doesn’t matter if you’re downstate or in Chicago, a student or a social service worker; we all have something in common: Not having a budget is not a laughing matter. Springfield has stopped listening to Illinois citizens. We must make enough noise that they won’t have a choice but to pay attention and do the job we elected them to do.

Send a letter to our state's elected leaders and your local legislators.

Thank you

to all those who lent their voices and helped tell the story of what our state political leaders’ inaction meant to real people in Illinois.

After three years,

the state of Illinois has a budget.

This is an important step toward financial stability, but there is more work to be done.

Illinois needs a comprehensive solution that will provide financial stability for the long term.

We will continue to push for the right solutions that will restore confidence in our state and promote economic growth to benefit all of the people of Illinois.
