Rally For Change

PUBLIC TO RALLY AGAINST CORRUPTION IN ILLINOIS POLITICS

Public, Civic, Business, Non-Profit, Philanthropic & Religious Groups to Converge in Chicago to CHANGE Illinois!

WHAT: On the heels of the indictment of former Governor, Rod Blagojevich, CHANGE Illinois! is holding a public rally calling for lawmakers to put an end to the culture of corruption. Voters, civic, business, non-profit, union and religious groups are set to gather in downtown Chicago, outside the Thompson Center, to say "Enough is
enough" - take big money out of Illinois politics by establishing campaign contribution limits!

WHO: Voters who've had enough, civic and business leaders, non-profit, union and religious groups.

Speakers will include:

* Rev. Patricia Watkins, TARGET Area Development Corporation, Executive Director

* Rami Nashashiba, Inner City Muslim Action Network, Executive Director

* Merri Dee, AARP, Illinois State President

WHEN: Thursday, April 9 at 10:00 AM

WHERE: Thompson Center Plaza, 100 W. Randolph St.

WHY: The public has had enough! Since 1970, over 1000 public officials have been convicted of corruption, including 19 judges (serving half the state's population), 30 Chicago Alderman, 2 Governor's with another just indicted and a former State Attorney General. That's about one conviction every other week! Illinois needs to end the culture of corruption and pay-to-play politics by enacting strict campaign finance
laws.

CONTACTS: Jim Bray (217) 793-8416 or David Irwin (312) 458-3621
