These photos tell a little bit of the story of how active Fox Valley Citizens for Peace & Justice & Occupy Elgin have been fighting for several different issues in summer 2018..
Yesterday (Tuesday, Oct 18th) , West Suburban activists, including some members of Fox Valley Citizens for Peace and Justice, and our allied organization Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice, united to call on Sen. Oberweis and Rep. Wheeler to stand with their constituents, not Governor Rauner’s anti-family, anti-worker agenda.We heard testimony about social service providers who are on the brink of closing and called for a fair budget with new revenue!
We will continue our fight tomorrow calling on Senate Republican Leader Christine Radagno to do the right thing for all Illinoisans by passing a budget with progressive revenue solutions in the veto session. Join us!

Bruce Rauner will bring his anti-worker agenda to Elgin. He is speaking at Elgin’s Public House at 219 E. Chicago Street, Elgin 60120 on Friday, March 6th at 4:15 PM. Fox Valley Citizens for Peace & Justice will join with Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice and several unions and will form a mass picket on the street in front of that restaurant.
Join us in support of unions, and the rights of working people. We will gather on that block at 3:30 PM. Dress for the weather. Bring signs if you can. There is a parking deck (free) at the corner of Chicago Street and Spring Street.
