DEMAND POLICY CHANGE TO IMPROVE LIVES

“I’m Back.”

Illinois residents resoundingly rejected Governor Pritzker’s Tax Hike Amendment in 2020 that would’ve raised taxes on Illinois families and the over 110,000 small businesses in our state.

Now, it turns out that proponents of the graduated income tax did not learn their lesson and want to try again. Sen. Robert Martiwck (D-Chicago) plans on reintroducing a bill that would change Illinois’ flat tax to a graduated income tax within the next month.

Our Mission

ILLINOIS POLICY

REVOLUTION

The Illinois Opportunity Project believes that empowering and organizing people around our shared values is the most impactful way to change our State and strengthen our communities.

We use the neighborhood team model and relational organizing to empower individuals to change their neighborhoods and advance free-market principles into law.

This relationship-centric approach prioritizes the identification, training, and development of volunteer leaders. These local leaders build field organizations that drive voter contact, strengthen their communities, and create lasting policy and political change. It is a grassroots model that builds advocacy capacity from the neighborhood up, not the top down.

This approach of investing in people, building relationships, and creating a structure of cascading training and leadership development allows us to contact and educate voters on an enormous scale.
