Pitch in to help CBIL6 educate and engage voters to improve our democracy!
The Coalition for a Better Illinois 6th (CBIL6) is a network of 24 grassroots groups in the Illinois 6th Congressional District committed to an informed and engaged citizenry. We educate the public on important issues. We highlight the voting record of our elected officials. And we encourage everyone who supports democracy to vote in every election.
Hundreds of citizens attended protests, educational forums, and rallies about Healthcare, tax policy, and more. We held our elected representatives accountable and advocated for policies to help citizens of the IL6th.
CBIL6 trained over 300 volunteers to knock doors in 2017 and had over 2,000 conversations with voters about the pressing issues facing our district and nation.
Thousands of volunteers hand wrote and donated postage to send over 200,000 postcards to voters ahead of the primary and general elections in 2018. The postcards encouraged those who share our values to get out and vote!
