UPDATE:

We are receiving word that the Paul Ryan Fundraiser at the Chicago Club has been cancelled for now. Nonetheless, yesterday over 1,000 people came out to the streets of Chicago to defend healthcare, and to resist the new attacks being initiated by the disastarous healthcare bill. It was an excellent beginning, but we want to keep up the pressure and stay in the streets.

So tonight, instead of the Chicago Club, please join us at Trump Tower at 4PM to continue standing against the Trump regime, and to stand up for healthcare as a human right that should not be subject to the whims of a right-wing congress!

Tell Gov. Rauner: Do Your Job!

March 30, 2017 - 5 PM - 7 PM

Stop Holding Illinois Hostage—Pass A Fair Budget Now!
Don’t Dictate, Negotiate a Fair Contract with State Workers!

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is hosting a “Governor’s Dinner” to raise money for himself and other Republican politicians—charging $40,000 for a “Gold Level” private reception.

We won’t be buying any tickets, but we’ll be there—to tell Governor Rauner to “DO YOUR JOB, negotiate with state workers and sign a budget now!”

Join Illinois Working Together, the Chicago Federation of Labor, AFSCME Council 31, SEIU Illinois, the Illinois Federation of Teachers, Citizen Action/Illinois and more.

For two years, Rauner has failed to propose a balanced budget and refused to work with legislators on a compromise. From students to seniors, he’s holding hostage the people of Illinois.

Meanwhile, Rauner has failed to settle contracts with five unions that represent the overwhelming majority of women and people of color in state government. For the past year he’s refused to negotiate at all with AFSCME, the largest union of public service workers in state government, instead pushing to impose his harsh terms!

Congressional Stakeouts To Save Health Care – West Chicago, IL

The GOP “TrumpCare” plan would tear away health care from 24 million people over the next 10 years, defund Planned Parenthood, destroy Medicaid, and raise insurance premiums—and Republicans are hoping to pass it in the next 18 days.

We can stop them and save our health care, if we raise our voices in unprecedented ways. That’s why constituents will gather outside the district offices of nine Republican Senators and 23 Republican Representatives who hold the decisive votes for peaceful “Stakeouts to Save Our Health Care” from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. this Thursday and Friday, March 16 and 17, when members of Congress return home for a scheduled “district work period”.

We’ll make sure that anyone coming in or out of the office—staff, visitors, the members of Congress themselves—have to come face to face with us, their constituents. Bring medical-themed props (slings, crutches, scrubs, stethoscopes), bring home-made signs, and bring your stories, your anger, and your hope!

The Washington Post reported that the Trump administration will propose cutting $6 billion, or 14%, from the HUD budget. Cuts that severe will cause millions of people to lose their housing assistance, and will dramatically increase homelessness across the country.

Please join us at our action on 3/21 to fight back and send a clear message about the importance of funding for housing, and to connect Trump to the people whose interests he is REALLY serving — corporations and billionaires!!!

Day 48 of the Resistance: Protest the revised Muslim Ban!

On March 16th, 2017, Trump’s new version of the Muslim Ban will go into effect across the United States. The new ban still affects people from 6 Arab, Muslim, and African countries, including Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Iran, and Syria. While the trump administration has tried to apply cosmetic changes by excluding legal permanent residents and those who already have visas, one thing is clear–It is Still a Muslim Ban.

The new ban is cloaked in the same xenophobic, Anti-Arab, and Anti-Muslim language of the first. In attacking our communities with the language of the War on Terror, it is clear that the goal is to further target and criminalize our communities through racism.

This ban also comes on the heels of the ramping up of ICE activity as a result of the DHS memos on immigration enforcement. These dangerous memos have created a climate of repression and fear across immigrant communities in the U.S., especially Mexicans and Central Americans. This is why the Chicago welcoming city ordinance amendments, now in the city council, are so important to be passed.

Lastly, this ban also comes as the DOJ, led by racist Jeff Sessions, has promised to further criminalize protests, and take the gloves off local police departments, like Chicago’s, allowing them to get away with their brutality and crimes.

For these reasons, we say join us on March 16th at 4:30pm at 101 W Congress Parkway in downtown Chicago, as we so NO to the Muslim Ban, NO to ICE raids, and NO to the criminalization of Black communities and protest.
