Raise Illinois has created a petition for supporters to sign that will be delivered to our elected officials in Springfield to show the overwhelming support of a minimum wage increase in Illinois. Petitions are an extremely effective way of putting pressure on legislators to stand up against corporate interests and vote for bills that help working families in Illinois.
We currently have three different petitions: one for faith leaders, one for business owners, and one for the general public.
Please take a minute of your time to add your name to a petition to support Senate Bill 1565, the bill to raise the minimum wage in Illinois!
