The Healthy IL Campaign for Healthcare and Immigrant Justice!
Nearly 526,000 undocumented individuals live in the state of IL. Every year hundreds of them are denied basic medical coverage simply because they are undocumented. The Healthy IL Campaign will fight to change this. Expanding health insurance coverage to all Illinoisans not only saves lives; it also benefits the entire state by promoting positive health care outcomes, family financial stability, and a more secure IL economy.
Our state has demonstrated great leadership in issues of immigrant justice before. Now is the time for us to push back against hateful and anti-immigrant hysteria rhetoric by uniting to fight for concrete improvements in the lives of immigrants within our state. The Healthy IL Campaign provides us with an invaluable opportunity to do this!
The Healthy IL Campaign public rally launch will take place Monday, September 28th at 6:30 PM at the Providence of God Church (717 W. 18th St). We hope that you will join the CRLN and the rest of the Healthy IL Campaign for this very important event.
