Illinois is losing population.

The effects of this are two-fold and straightforward: we are losing talent and wealth.

Given the inextricable link between the fate of Black people and the fate of the

state, if we do nothing to confront the history of Black oppression and systemic racism, we

leave Illinois even more vulnerable to social and economic decline,

decline of our own making.

WE HAVE A CHOICE.
