Worried? Write Your Legislators

Updated: Mar 20

***CALL TO ACTION***Please share with the community.


Submit Witness Slip forms via links below ASAP to oppose if you share the concerns outlined below. There are several house bills you need to know about that could adversely affect our kids and the quality of our public schools.


Warning: It is not pleasant. Here are two you have to read about now:


1) Bill Status of HB2789 102nd General Assembly


My take-away: Local boards of education lose all autonomy to provide education to their communities. It will grant the IDPH and ISBE authoritarian rule alongside Governor-issued directives. What is the point of an elected board of education to serve in trust for the community if it has been voided of all ability to serve? They restricted school choice/access to public school already...this will give them power to do it again...and again...and again.

This is dangerous.


See the full bill here.

FORM/WITNESS SLIP, DEADLINE MARCH 24 @ 8:30am: Fill out and list "self" as person/group.

2) Bill Status of HB2814 102nd General Assembly


My take-away: If the majority of the oath is being entirely removed, the very affirmation to the constituency by an elected official is being devalued and relegated. Why remove this accountability?

This is dangerous.

FORM/WITNESS SLIP, DEADLINE MARCH 24 @2pm: https://my.ilga.gov/WitnessSlip/Create/131671...


Please consider submitting a Witness Slip for these bills and any others that worry you. Our kids and the state of IL demand it.
