Economic Security for Illinois builds collective power to advance policy solutions that make Illinois’ economy the most equitable and inclusive in the country. These include guaranteed income and cash transfer policies that give cash to people who need it, use it, and could benefit from it; and equitable taxation structures, including an expansion of the existing Earned Income Credit and the implementation of a state Child Tax Credit. Director Harish I. Patel tells the story of recent wins and explains ESIL’s role in shaping the coalition.
