Demand Tax Relief

Illinois received $8 billion in COVID relief funds from the federal government. Instead of giving Pritzker more power over more tax dollars, Illinois families who have been struggling with the rising costs of every day goods due to inflation deserve tax relief.

State Reps. Avery Bourne and Tom Demmer proposed giving Illinois families $400 in tax credits to lighten the burden. Gov. Pritzker completely dismissed the idea of giving families any sort of tax relief.

Illinois families deserve relief and a leader who is cognizant of the struggles of the average Illinois family.

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.
