Making a difference requires action, and action includes a broad spectrum of activities. From acquiring knowledge by reading or attending speaking engagements, to calling your representatives and expressing your opinions to them; you can make a difference.
We have an opportunity in Illinois to flip several House Districts from Republican to Democrat, but we cannot accomplish this without your help!
While many of us are outraged at the horrific policies enacted by the Trump administration, we should at the same time be just as much appalled by the state legislators who align their policies with the Trump Administration’s.
Let us show these legislators that their dreadful policy preferences will not be tolerated by the people of Illinois!
Below are four Democratic House candidates that have the potential to succeed in their race; but they need our help now more than ever!
Join us at the Niles Township Democratic Organization, 4504 Oakton St., Skokie, as we will be phone banking into these candidates’ districts.
Any amount of time would help!

We will focus on the following candidates:
Kathleen is running in retiring Jeanne Ives‘ (R-Wheaton) district . Her extreme right-wing opponent, Amy Grant, will continue Jeanne Ives’ far-right, anti-choice agenda if elected. This is the same Jeanne Ives who said on the House floor “We [women] do not need laws to protect us, we need men to protect us”.
Kathleen promises to protect women’s right to choose, and restore funding to women’s breast cancer research and domestic abuse shelters. She is a longtime active member in her community, and is not afraid to fight against Governor Bruce Rauner and Donald Trump’s Administrations.
Maggie has worked primarily in the healthcare research field, where she helped providers better understand their patients. In addition to preserving women’s rights, such as choice, that are currently under attack by right-wing zealots like Morrison, Maggie will fight against health insurance premium increases, and to preserve pre-existing conditions protections for the people of Illinois.
