Boom! Millenials have surpassed baby boomers as the largest generation in the electorate. But that’s not the only good news--according to a recent Harvard Kennedy School poll, two-thirds of them want Democratic control of Congress! All-of-us need to celebrate and amplify this generation’s efforts. That’s why Wall-of-Us has launched a partnership with College Democrats in 2018. We will be featuring their work in key states all year. This week, let’s focus on Illinois.
The College Democrats of Illinois’ plan for 2018 includes, “fighting to #UnseatTheSeven Republican congressmen who represent Illinois in the United States House of Representatives. Each of these men voted to repeal Obamacare and prevent 23 million people across the country and over 700,000 here in Illinois from accessing affordable healthcare, as well as voting to gut Dodd-Frank and allowing private companies to sell our personal data.”
After speaking with the students leading the College Democrats, we can confirm that they are fired-up and laced-up to ensure progressive victories in elections, in Illinois and all over this country. But they can’t do it alone--these students need our back-up. All-of-us must step-up to support the College Democrats of Illinois this week.
