OUR COALITION

Who we are & what we do

Coalition for a Better Illinois 6th

Network of grassroots groups in the 6th Congressional District of Illinois

The Coalition for a Better Illinois 6th (CBIL6) is a network of grassroots groups and individuals working in the 6th Congressional District of Illinois who share a core set of values based upon the beliefs that people in the United States of America deserve equal and fair treatment regardless of their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status and that a successful democracy requires an informed and engaged public.

CBIL6 focuses its attention, energies and resources on public advocacy involving matters relating to the organization’s core values on behalf of the people of the 6th District of Illinois. CBIL6 coordinates, supports and facilitates member groups in their efforts to achieve their shared goals and will sponsor, promote, and/or produce certain district-wide events and activities in association with member groups and, as appropriate, with other like-minded organizations. CBIL6 will promote and support efforts in the 6th district to educate the residents on issues affecting them, share elected officials’ positions on those issues, and encourage citizens to register and vote.

This summer, the Coalition for a Better IL 6th will begin a massive voter outreach program, canvassing across the 6th Congressional District to talk with citizens about important issues and their priorities.

We need to raise at least $10,000 to pay for the materials and technology necessary to support this issue based canvass which will lay the foundation for future outreach in the District.

Your contribution, of any size, will be greatly appreciated and will go directly towards efforts in the District.

Please note that contributions to CBIL6 are not tax deductible. The Coalition for a Better IL-6th is organized as a social welfare organization under a 501(c)(4) with Citizen Action/Illinois.

PETER ROSKAM TOWN HALL

Waiting for Congressman Peter Roskam Town Hall

Congressman Peter Roskam refuses to hold town halls, which are a bedrock of our democracy. Instead he holds “tele town halls” with screened questions and no follow-up allows, which you register for from his campaign website.
