Elections & Progressive Leadership

"There are three critical ingredients to democratic renewal and progressive change in America: good public policy, grassroots organizing and electoral politics.
-- The Late Senator Paul Wellstone

Citizen Action/Illinois & The Progressive Action Project

  • Advocating for progressive values and a progressive agenda in Springfield and Washington, DC
  • Organizing and building coalitions that are committed to social justice and economic fairness
  • Reaching out into communities and educating the public about issues and candidates
  • Registering people to vote and encouraging them to participate in the political process

Citizen Action/Illinois is not only the largest consumer watchdog group in Illinois, but also one of the most effective vehicles for progressive political involvement in our state.
