One Safety Net

Grassroots community organizations stand united to rebuild Illinois with a comprehensive economic package of housing, healthcare, immigrant rights, highway safety, jobs and income supports. We reject efforts to divide us into young and old, employed and unemployed, legal and undocumented, deserving and undeserving poor, white and people of color. We are one people who have common needs that include income support for the working poor; homes for the homeless; prescription drugs for the elderly; legal, affordable and safe transportation for all workers; living wage jobs and extended benefits for the unemployed.
