Script: My name is _____. I live in zip code ______ and am a member of Indivisible Chicago.  I'm calling to urge the Representative to fight against any tax plan that jeopardizes Medicare and Medicaid to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. Congress will have to offset these huge tax cuts with cuts to Medicare and Medicaid in order to make them permanent. I don’t believe that cutting taxes for the rich will do anything for the economy, except to make the rich richer.

Action 2: Donate to Hurricane Irma Relief

Hurricane Irma has devastated the Caribbean and is now careening through Florida causing untold damage. If you have the means to do so, please consider donating to the following reputable organizations to aid the hurricane’s victims at home and abroad.

Action 3: Sign the Petition to End Interstate Crosscheck Voter Suppression in Illinois

Illinois participates in a program called Crosscheck which has been used to illegally purge voters from the rolls. Crosscheck is also a propaganda tool used to support Trump’s debunked claims of massive voter fraud. If you’d like to know more, read our FAQ.

Indivisible Illinois has started a petition to call on the Illinois State Board of Elections to fight voter suppression and end the use of Crosscheck in Illinois. Sign today!
