We care about the environment, taxes, healthcare, and fairness

Important Announcements

1. It's critically important that we have virus-free voting in Illinois in November. There is legislation in Springfield to make that possible, but we only have 3 weeks to act! See our News page for what you can do to vote from home

2. Sean Casten (IL-6) and Lauren Underwood (IL-14) have both done outstanding jobs representing their DuPage county constituents in Washington. Indivisible DuPage is therefore proud to endorse both Sean and Lauren for re-election!  See our News page announcement for details

3. Do you want to be a part of the change you want? Come to a meeting or do more! Your help would be invaluable!! We are making progress and having fun doing it! You can make a difference as a member of Indivisible DuPage (yes, it's free). Fill out the form here and a member of leadership will contact you.

You're invited

Newspapers have an important roll to play in shaping public opinion. Know that papers depend on feedback from their readers on the articles they publish. They pay particular attention to well-written Letters to the Editor. Have you ever considered adding your own voice to the discussion? Why not join us June 4th at 7:00 PM on Zoom to learn how to write effective letters? This interesting and informative meeting will be presented by talented authors Florence Appfel and Walter Zlotow. Sign-up here! (Zoom is easy, click here for help)

 

Meanwhile be sure to check out our News page for the latest events. You can also keep up with IDP on our Facebook and Twitter pages

 

It's not too soon to be thinking about the November General Election. If you want to vote by mail, find your polling site, or check your status, see our Resources​ page for the official Du Page county and Illinois web sites

Did you know that 30% of the 614,752 registered voters in DuPage county didn't vote in the 2016 presidential election? That more than twice that many didn't vote in the 2016 primary election? Did it matter? Ask the 14th Congressional District candidate who lost DuPage by three votes

 

The stakes couldn't have be higher, so Coalition for a Better Illinois 6th (CBIL) conducted a get-out-the-vote drive. They sent out 42,000 postcards urging voters to go to the polls.  We all pitched in and another 150,000 postcards went out for the general election. Click here to learn more about more CBIL projects.  Getting as many people to the polls as possible was critical. This was the year that every vote counted.

DuPage voters were fed up with Donald Trump's enablers. We wanted our representatives to stand up for us, not special interests. November 6, 2018 we elected new people to our County Board, new representatives in Springfield, a new Governor, and flipped control of Congress. Let's keep the momentum going!

Your 2020 Representatives in Washington

 

Democrats were elected in historic numbers because your parents' Republican party is gone

Did you know that Theodore Roosevelt founded the National Park System, Richard Nixon created the EPA, Ronald Reagan legalized four million immigrants, and George Bush gave us Medicare drug coverage?

In a recent appearance at Benedictine University in Lisle, longtime Wisconsin talk show host Charlie Sykes decried how the party of "family values" had come to embrace a man like Donald Trump.

 

The author of How the Right Lost Its Mind​ was particularly scornful of politicians who abandon their principles and enable a President who seems at odds with everything the Party of Lincoln once stood for.
