Welcome to the Citizen Uprising in Illinois!
In 2013 the Illinois legislature passed a resolution calling for the 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics [SJR 27], and in 2015 they passed an Amendment Convention call. That's a great start, but these is a lot more for us to do.

Our citizen leaders, volunteers, and allies are gearing up for a statewide ballot initiative so that we can take this issue to the people and grow the uprising. From there, we can translate that cross-partisan support of the voters into cross-partisan support in D.C.
