We need your help to collect our goal of 3,000 signatures between August 30th and November 28th to secure Ambria's place on the ballot. At the same time, you know that we’re working for more than just to elect one Alderman. This is a movement for workers rights, community empowerment, and more. That’s why while we are out collecting petition signatures, we will also be talking to our neighbors about the Workers’ Rights Amendment to the Illinois Constitution. The Amendment will be voted on across the entire state, and would enshrine workers’ rights in the Illinois constitution. The referendum question will be on the ballot this November. The Ambria for Alderman campaign is a staunchly pro-union, pro-worker campaign so this referendum is very important to us and would protect working class communities like ours from threats to wages, benefits, and dignity at work. We have seen what happens when rights are not explicitly codified in a constitution, so we will not let this opportunity pass us by.
