We envision a state that meets the basic human needs of all Illinoisans, but too often, the needs of one community are held up against the needs of another. Working families are caught in the middle, forced to fight over crumbs in the state budget, while billions in potential revenue are left on the table from big corporations and the wealthiest Illinoisans, who can easily contribute more to ensure our state is welcoming and caring for all.

In the new report Funding Our Futures, members of the Illinois Fund Our Futures coalition will lay out some of the new revenues that the General Assembly and Governor can pass in order to fund the programs needed to ensure families across Illinois can thrive.
