Blast Governor Pritzker's Failed Record

Governor Pritzker has failed Illinois. 

His budget raises politicians’ pay by $1,200, increases taxes on businesses by $665 million, cuts programs for adults with disabilities, and provides no property tax relief for working-class families. 

Voters need to know. The most effective way to share this message is through neighbor to neighbor, one on one conversations and that’s what we’re doing. 

Changing the state in 2022 starts now.

Recall Corrupt Politicians

Illinois is the third most corrupt state in the country. Our movement seeks to empower voters with another tool to hold elected officials accountable between elections since the politicians have proven to be incapable of doing it themselves.

How to

CANVASS EFFECTIVELY

The most effective way to motivate a voter to take action, whether contacting their representative, supporting a candidate, or otherwise advocating for our shared values, is to have a one-on-one personal conversation with them. The most effective type of one-on-one conversation is face to face, at their door. 

How to

Host a

DOOR KNOCKING EVENT

How to

Build

a volunteer team

Volunteer recruitment is the most important skill that can be developed and refined by a grassroots leader. Building a team requires us to step outside of our comfort zone and establish a personal relationship with every volunteer.

How to

HOST A PHONE BANK

Phone calls are a critical part of any campaign. Calling as a group increases effectiveness and builds camaraderie. Phone banks can take place in a volunteer’s home, a campaign office, or anywhere with a wifi connection.

How to

Host

A HOUSE MEETING

A house meeting is an important building block for changing our state. These social gatherings are an opportunity to share our message and recruit new people to our causes. 

How to

REGISTER NEW VOTERS

Voter registration enables us to grow our voter base, leading us closer to victory on Election Day. County fairs, parades, and veterans events are great places to register voters, and we can use data to find unregistered voters in a more targeted way.

How to

Contact

Your Local Officials

Although it can seem intimidating to speak with your state representative, it’s really not that difficult.  Thousands do it everyday. 

How to

Write

a Letter to the Editor

Letters to the editor provide an opportunity to share your voice in your local newspaper. You can use them to refute a storyline presented by a newspaper, or bring attention to a policy or person you support. If it is an issue that you care about, it is likely that others will care too.

How to

organize

ONLINE

Facebook and other social media platforms are excellent places to build a network of commonly-minded individuals, as they allow us to organize people virtually and build community around shared values and interests.
