Restore Justice Advocacy Team

Our Advocacy Team is for anyone who lives in Illinois and wants to advocate for legislative change. We ask team members to spend a few minutes each week during the January-May legislative session contacting their legislators. We host an optional 30-minute check-in on Fridays during session.


If you are interested in taking action on our policy priorities and helping to advance criminal legal change in Illinois, join our Advocacy Team. Team members contact their legislators in support of our policy priorities and sometimes visit Springfield to meet with lawmakers.

Information & Resources

When you join the Advocacy Team, we will ask for your address so that we can send you the contact information and social media profiles for your state senator and state representative.

A Weekly Action to Advance Change

During the legislative session, We will send you a weekly action in which we will ask you to engage with your legislators around our core issues of bringing people home from prison and rolling back extreme sentencing laws.

Weekly Check-Ins with the Restore Justice Team

Join us for optional weekly Zoom check-ins with Restore Justice staff members on Fridays at noon during the legislative session. You will learn more about the action of the week, and share progress, stories, challenges, and ideas.

That team feeling!

There will be swag on occasion – and recognition. You will be part of the effort to make Illinois a safer, fairer, and more compassionate state!
