We are Awake Illinois

This grassroots organization was launched by everyday parents and citizens in May 2021. During the pandemic year, many of us "awakened" to the issues affecting our communities, our children, and our liberties.  Awake Illinois chartered the first chapter in Naperville, Illinois, and is now expanding throughout all 4 corners of the state. 

Thanks to the volunteerism of our chapter chairs and members, our advocacy is waking up Illinoisans each day while empowering citizens to elevate their voices on topics of education, equality, legislationcivic involvement, and social welfare causes. 

Join the movement here. Please consider a non-tax-deductible donation to support our statewide efforts. Grab an Awake IL t-shirt/hoodie herehttps://www.bonfire.com/awakefringe/.
