A Message from the Chair

The strength of the Democratic Party of Illinois is in our diversity, our shared belief that every person should have the opportunity to have a job that pays a living wage, and our commitment to fighting for working families. We’ve never been a party that’s stood still. We embrace change and new thinking, especially when it helps increase Illinoisans’ health, well being and economic opportunities. I’m proud that since 2010 Illinois has stood out in the Midwest. While surrounding states have seen their legislatures flip to Republican control, Illinois is an island of blue in a sea of red. That success is due to the hard work of volunteers, activists, dedicated staff and candidates up and down the ballot. In 2020, we’re taking nothing for granted and have embarked on the most ambitious party-building effort ever. We will have a presence in every county, from Rockford to Cairo and the Quad-Cities to Kankakee, and every point in between. Please join us as we work to help the state recover from the damage caused by Bruce Rauner’s failed governorship and rebuild Illinois to work for everyone.
