"Save Our State" Rally in Springfield!! - April 21

The state of Illinois is in serious debt ($13 billion in debt, to be exact), and every Illinoisan is feeling the effect. Unfortunately, many of the services that we rely on are in grave danger of major cut-backs: schools, libraries, health care, police, and transit budgets are scheduled to lose funding. Resources for our children, the elderly, disabled, and unemployed face are at risk.

As Illinois residents, we must demand our legislators act now to Save Our State!

On April 21st, the Responsible Budget Coalition is organizing a massive rally and march in Springfield to urge our representatives to save that which is important to us. We demand that they stop dodging these issues and work to develop a balanced solution. This demonstration will be the largest demonstration Springfield has ever seen!

Join us! We can no longer sit around and wait for a responsible budget that considers the best interests of our children and families.
