#PeoplesPlatform in Illinois

The Democratic Party Platform makes it clear that Democrats must fight for these issues as a party. We’re asking all House Democrats to commit to supporting our #PeoplesPlatform bills by signing on as a co-sponsor when Congress comes back in session in September.

The #PeoplesPlatform includes support for:

  • Health Care: H.R. 676 - Medicare for All Act
  • Free College Tuition: H.R. 1880 - College for All Act of 2017
  • Minimum Wage: H.R. 15 - Raise the Wage Act
  • Women's Rights: H.R. 771 - Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance
  • Voting Rights: H.R. 2840 - Automatic Voter Registration Act
  • Criminal Justice: H.R. 3227 - Justice is Not For Sale Act of 2017
  • Wall Street: H.R. 1144 - Inclusive Prosperity Act
  • Climate: H.R. 2242 - Keep It in the Ground Act of 2017
Read more about each bill here.

In the state of Illinois, currently only Rep. Jan Schakowsky has stepped up to co-sign 100% of these bills. All other reps are 50% or lower with the majority at 38% support only.

Resisting the Trump administration and Republican Congressional agenda is only part of how we can move our country forward. Now is the time for Democrats to campaign on a bold agenda and fight to create an America that works for everyone. If Democrats want to win in 2018 and take our country back from the billionaire class and Republicans, they need to start by supporting legislation that speaks to the real concerns facing the American people. We're fighting for a Congress that will put people before profits to create an America where everyone, regardless of the age, race, gender or economic status has access to health care, free college tuition, a livable planet, and a job that pays a living wage.
