MEMBERS OF ALLIANCE DONATE ONE DAY OF WORK
Recently, members of The Alliance petitioned outside the Skokie Public Aid Office to put the "Human" back in Human Services. Labor Beat, an independent labor organization, filmed many of our volunteers while gathering live testimony from the office's clients about the changes in the Public Aid Offices.

Let’s put "Human" back in Human Services
The Alliance for Community Services brings together people that depend on human services, front-line service workers -- the real experts on how our Human Services system works -- to "put the HUMAN into human services".
Together, we call for:
* health care and human services for all
* person-centered, fully staffed and accountable human service offices
* progressive revenue to fully fund a social safety net Illinois can be proud of.
