In Illinois, city and state governments spend billions of public dollars every year to build roads, buses, bridges, and the public infrastructure that keeps the state and country running. Jobs to Move America is waging campaigns in Illinois to ensure that the benefits accrued by the companies receiving public funding result in good jobs and community benefits and a cleaner environment.
Our coalition organizes to win Community Benefits Agreements, build job pipelines, and support local and statewide policy holding companies that receive public support accountable. Our goal is to make sure our public dollars expand access to good jobs with family-sustaining wages in historically under-resourced neighborhoods.
