Who is Invited?
Any and all grassroots group, parental rights advocates, and pro-constitution citizens. Groups from outside IL are also welcome. After years of government overreach and an Illinois General Assembly that has let Governor Pritzker rule by tyranny, We the People, are a united force. Whether you are a small community group or a larger statewide effort, we will restore IL together. See Coalition Groups listed below.
What is the goal?
This event will symbolize that regular people are THE voice in Illinois. Many of us are feeling like political orphans in the wake of harmful pandemic policies, anti-child agendas, and woke ideologies led by democrats and barely fought by weak republicans. The time is now to ensure a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Our children cannot advocate for themselves, so we must take a stand for them. The General Election is November 8, 2022. Wherever you fall in the political spectrum, join us as Americans who have HOPE for Illinois and the future of our country.
How will we convey the message?
This event will be a RESPECTFUL and professional display of thought leaders and advocates. Anyone displaying contrary behavior will be asked to detach from the caravan. From testimony to inspirational calls to action, this will be an illustration of the HOPE we have the Land of Lincoln. All signage must be carried; no affixing to any part of capitol grounds is allowed. Invitations will be send to select political candidates who have championed liberty, due process, and parental rights.
What are the main issues?
Why the "Common Sense Caravan"?
To solve the biggest problems plaguing Illinois merely takes COMMON SENSE. We invite state and local leadership to bring HOPE to Illinois by working alongside the coalition on reasonable solutions that will protect children, make for safer communities, promote parental rights, improve educational outcomes, reduce government bloat, and modernize our state infrastructure.
