Make Illinois Tuition-Free!

To be delivered to The Illinois State House, The Illinois State Senate, and Governor Bruce Rauner

Petition Statement

Every student should have access to public higher education, regardless of their income. Illinois should raise taxes on the ultra-wealthy and close corporate tax loopholes to fund free in-state tuition at all community colleges and public universities.
There are currently 5,626 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

The recent cuts to higher education have been devastating — valued faculty are leaving, and Illinois students are going to schools in other states. Meanwhile, young people and their families are being crushed by the high cost of college, even at our public institutions. A bold investment in free tuition would lift the burden of debt off the next generation and provide stable funding and a wave of enthusiasm for our public universities and community colleges.
