6th District of Illinois – Holding Rep. Peter Roskam Accountable

This group has been created for constituents of Rep. Peter Roskam, Congressman for the 6th District of Illinois, to organize and make ourselves heard by our Representative. The Congressman has shown little responsiveness to the concerns of the people he represents, so it is incumbent upon us to make ourselves known. For more information visit Facebook.

Action 6th District Illinois

We’re a non-partisan group created by the people of the 6th Congressional District of Illinois.

We aim to draw attention to the needs of our District not being addressed by our elected representative, Peter Roskam. We achieve this through focusing on legislation in the House of Representatives. Our team posts regular information about upcoming Bills and Congressional activities, and we encourage members to take action.

We’re looking for change through:
– In-person town halls and personal accountability.
– Responsive leadership that listens to our voices, shares our concerns, and empathizes with those who struggle.
– Transparent and open communication.
– The ability to embrace all constituents, from all walks of life, regardless of race, religion or political party.

We believe that, by working together, the people of Illinois’ 6 th District can join forces to bring about positive change and a stronger community united in spirit and action.
