#ChooseRevenue Day of Action, May 13
As a member of the Responsible Budget Coalition (RBC), we know the cuts in Governor Rauner’s proposed budget would devastate our families and communities. But lawmakers and the Governor don’t have to make those cuts–they have a choice. Instead of painful cuts to vital programs for our children, families, and communities, lawmakers and the Governor must choose revenue.
On May 13, 2015 we encourage both organizations and individuals to join in RBC’s #ChooseRevenue Day of Action by using Facebook, Twitter, email, and our toll free number (1-844-311-CUTS) to contact Illinois state legislators and be heard!
Here’s what you can do to participate:
- Send an action alert to your list on May 13 that will include a toll free number (1-844-311-CUTS) for individuals to use to call their lawmakers as well as a link to the RBC action page (http://bit.ly/1zW6kOs) that will allow them to email their lawmakers directly (click here for sample e-alert language).
- Post the RBC Day of Action weblink (http://bit.ly/1zW6kOs) to your social media sites and be sure to tag lawmakers in your posts. For Twitter, use the following hashtags: #nocuts #chooserevenue #twill (click here for sample social media posts and here for a spreadsheet containing state lawmakers’ Twitter handles).
- Contact MacKenzie Speer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know your organization will be participating in the #ChooseRevenue Day of Action.
