Help us fight for full funding by supporting HB 3259!

HB 3259 provides for full, FY17 funding for domestic violence agencies as promised by their signed contracts with the State. It is critical for this funding to be received ASAP so that agencies can continue providing the life-saving services to the crime victims they serve. Please show support for any other budget efforts that would provide full funding at $18.6M for domestic violence agencies.

Here is how you can help:

  • Please contact your local representatives and any others with whom you have a good relationship. The link of representatives is below, and I would encourage contacting their Springfield offices.  http://www.ilga.gov/house/
  • Please share this email with your board, friends, family, and allies so that they, too, may contact their representatives.
  • Possible Simple Script:  My name is ______, and I am calling/emailing on behalf of __(agency)_____.
