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.
