[This petition is specifically for citizens in the State of Illinois.]
Our elected officials need to Stop Taking Our Programs, specifically human service programs. These programs are critical to the health, safety and welfare of inviduals and local communities will bare the financial burden of care should proposed budget cuts occur.
The Executive and Legislative branches of government should work in partnership with one another. A cooperative spirit is sorely needed for measures that will sustain human lives. The most creative and effective solutions often arise from desperate need, but elected officials must first have an unyielding hope and an unrelenting determination to do better than what is thought possible. To lessen the magnitude of human tragedy, both branches of government must resolve to work in tandem with one another.
Sign the petition, make some phone calls and write some letters urging the Governor, Senators and Representatives to Stop Taking Our Programs! They belong to the citizens of Illinois and should be preserved at all costs.
