Why Today's Actions Are Important

Action #1: Tell Governor Rauner and your Senate Rep to pass the Revenue and Spending bill

Governor Rauner has promised to veto the spending bill despite the fact that Illinois is on the brink of junk bond status. We need to call and demand that he stop holding the state hostage and agree to a compromise. It's not clear to me where he expects to end up never passing a budget, but it's killing our state. Is the budget perfect? I'm sure it's not. But can we survive without one? We absolutely cannot. In politics things are rarely going to be perfect.

Action#2: Join the protest of Peter Roskam at the Wheaton 4th of July parade.

One of the main tenants of the Indivisible Guide is to not let your Representative attend any public appearance without hearing about how his decisions are hurting people. Well, District 6 has plans to hold Peter Roskam accountable and anyone who can should get our there and join them.

And our own Mark Sorkin, one of the leaders of Indivisible South Side, has a message for why you should march in your 4th of July parade. Indivisible South Side will be marching in the Hyde Park 4th of July parade.
