The SBAC was featured on Mighty House Radio Show live from our canvassing event in Northfield on Saturday, July 1st. Engagement continued to increase during the day as SBAC members, volunteers and staff connected with many individuals who want to see a functional government in Illinois.
SBAC members, staff and volunteers canvassed to end the budget impasse at the Park Ridge Farmers Market and Northfield Farmers Market. We asked residents of Illinois to call on their legislators to pass a responsible budget and end the destructive impasse. With over 20 volunteers participating, we reached hundreds of people who resonated with our bi-partisan message and agreed that the political gamesmanship needs to come to an end.
We feel these efforts had a tremendous impact on galvanizing Illinois residents to take an active role in asking their elected representative to end the budget impasse.
The SBAC will be canvassing at more upcoming local events. Join us to help Illinois’ economy stand tall! Our next canvassing event is on July 15th at the Safe Haven Run to End Homelessness at Montrose Harbor from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm. Reach out to SBAC Advocacy Director Ryan Tolley at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
