The People of Illinois Deserve More Power
Common Cause Illinois believes that our democracy works best when everyone has an equal voice and elected officials are held accountable. Unfortunately, wealthy special interests drown out the voices of everyday people. That’s not how our democracy should work – the size of your wallet shouldn’t determine the strength of your voice. It’s why we support HR 1 / SR 1, the For the People Act which has been introduced in the House and Senate. The Act ensures an ethical government accountable to the people, protects and expands voting rights and election security, and reduces the influence of big money in our politics
We urge all members of the Illinois delegation to support this critical bill to restore power to the people.
