Take Action


WE’RE HERE is a local group formed to show our government that “we’re here”and that we will be letting them know how we feel about the job they’re doing. We expect them to listen to US. It also affords those who gather the opportunity to feel community and share.

WE’RE HERE meets monthly on the 3rd Tuesday at 6 PM at the Livingston County Civil War Memorial in Pontiac.
(Northeast corner of the Old County Courthouse Square). The city of Pontiac has sanctioned the gathering.

If you have something to say, put it on a sign and bring it along. ​

Illinois Protect Our Care Coalition

A statewide coalition of health care advocates, providers, consumers, and workers, joining together 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. We know the crusade to undermine the ACA is not over whether there is a repeal vote this week, next week, or next year, so Protect Our Care Illinois invites you to join Illinoisans across the state to defend access to quality affordable health care for all.
