Thank Gov. Pritzker for Raising the Gas Tax

The state’s gas tax increases again on July 1. The doubling of the gas tax from 19 cents to 38 cents was part of Gov. Pritzker’s 2019 budget that included 20 tax and fee hikes. The gas tax increases every year with inflation and also empowers local governments to raise their gas tax.

To show your appreciation for higher taxes, sign here to thank Gov. Pritzker!

Save the Invest in Kids Act

Parents deserve more options for their child’s education. That’s why school choice policies such as Illinois’ tax credit scholarship program, the Invest in Kids Act, are so critical in times like this.

Gov. Pritzker has repeatedly called to end the Invest in Kids Act with the Illinois Education Association’s support.

The Invest in Kids Act was passed in 2017 and has empowered thousands of parents across Illinois to choose where their child can receive the best educational opportunity.

Anthony Holter, president of Empower Illinois, the state’s largest scholarship-granting organization, said they “issued 5,500 scholarships (last year) and with every one issued, there were six more kids in line for one.”

Parents are desperate for better educational opportunities for their children. The General Assembly must act to save and make the Invest in Kids Scholarship Program permanent so that all children, no matter their disability, family’s income, or zip code, receive the best education possible.

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.
