Today, Illinois Rising Action officially launched as a new 501(c)(4) organization focused on holding public officials and liberal groups accountable on public policy issues. Illinois Rising is a state-based initiative of America Rising Squared (AR2), an organization focused on advancing conservative principles through cutting edge research, rapid response communications, a nationwide tracking network, and digital platforms. Illinois is the third state-based initiative of AR2, following Colorado and Michigan.

Illinois continues to be home to skyrocketing taxes, unbalanced budgets and corruption. It’s clear that there is a need for a strong, focused conservative voice to join the debate. Illinois Rising Action will aggressively educate Illinoisans concerning issues and the policy positions being put forward by liberals in state. – Sarah Dolan, executive director of America Rising Squared

Illinois Rising Action will be led by Kayleen Carlson, a political strategist with more than a decade of campaign experience in Illinois. Carlson has worked on and managed statewide, congressional, state, and local campaigns throughout the state. Most recently, Carlson managed an IE Legislative Project, in Illinois during the 2016 election cycle, that resulted in Republicans netting 6 new seats in the state legislature. Carlson also managed Congressman John Shimkus’ primary election in 2016 and Congressman Darin LaHood’s special primary and general elections in 2015.

Illinois’ future is in danger due to rampant corruption and liberal tax and spend policies being pushed by Governor Pritzker and the liberals in Springfield. Illinois Rising Action will work to make sure these liberal politicians are held accountable and answer to the hardworking families of Illinois. – Kayleen Carlson, executive director of Illinois Rising Action

Illinois Rising Action is focused on fighting for limited government, lowering taxes, fighting government over-regulation that stifles freedom, affordable and accessible health care, a strong nation security, and free enterprise.
