About Us

Economic Security for Illinois is a non-partisan non-profit advocating for bold policy solutions that work for working people. We promote ideas that will put money in people's pockets. 

Our policy solutions include: 

  • A Cost-of-Living Refund for low and moderate-income Illinoisans through an expansion and modernization of the state’s Earned Income Credit (EIC),

  • Promotion of a guaranteed income;

  • Cash Transfer programs and policies; and, 

  • Equitable taxation structures. 

Economic Security IL was formed in the spring of 2019, following the release of the Big Shoulders, Bold Solutions report by the various stakeholders involved in the Chicago Resilient Families Task Force.
