The small business community, non-profit organizations, college students, local municipalities, and everyone else being hurt by the conduct of Illinois' politicians must come together and demand an end to the state's destructive political stalemate. Illinois is still operating without a budget. While politicians continue their partisan bickering and unproductive rhetoric, their inaction is costing jobs, hurting non-profits and devastating the state's economy.

Join the SBAC, Reboot Illinois, Chicago Southland Chamber of Commerce, the New Lenox Chamber of Commerce and other area chambers at our Town Hall and Mobilization event and send this powerful, non-partisan message to our politicians: Pass a responsible budget and enact the reforms necessary to revive the Illinois economy. This free event will feature representatives from the non-profit and small business communities along with college students and other folks talking about how the state budget deadlock has affected them. We will also discuss ways to use our critical mass to press lawmakers for a solution to save jobs and the Illinois economy.

For those of you unable to attend in person, the event will also be live-streamed so that folks can get together, watch and participate interactively from different locations. It should be exciting to see the small business community mobilize and speak with a strong, non-partisan voice.

Date: Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
Time: 5pm-7:30pm (Program begins at 5:30pm)
Location: Chicago Southland Chamber, 18230 Orland Pkwy, Orland Park, IL 60467

This event is FREE to attend
Registration is Required

Moderated by:
Madeleine Doubek and Matt Dietrich, Reboot Illinois
