Keep Illinois Covered: An Advocacy Toolkit

EverThrive Illinois is committed to aggressively defending the Affordable Care Act.  As we face significant threats to health access from Congress, partners across the state must work together to make clear that the people of Illinois refuse to move backward. The following resources will help community groups tell the story of the ACA and Medicaid in their communities.


Protect Our Care IL

EverThrive IL has joined the Sargent Shriver Center for National Poverty Law, AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Access Living, and many other partners across the state in a new coaltion working to prevent the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), prevent disastrous changes to Medicaid, and protect and expand access to quality affordable health care.

Keep in the Loop

This pledge form will allow people in the community to demonstrate their commitment to protecting health access in Illinois and be contacted when there are opportunities to take action in the future.


Share Your Story

This story collection form is a space where people who have been positively impacted by the ACA or Medicaid can share their story. Stories are a crucial for showing just what is at risk if members of Congress strip millions of Americans of their health care.
