About

ONE People’s Campaign builds electoral power statewide around a progressive agenda. OPC organizes people who live on the front lines of the many crises plaguing our society in Chicago and Downstate Illinois. Our members are united around a vision of a state and country in which all voices are heard and government serves the interests of the people and the planet, so that communities thrive and every person lives with dignity.

ONE People’s Campaign (OPC) has been fighting for government that works for the people and protects the planet since 2017. ONE People’s Campaign endorses and supports progressive candidates and policies that put the interests of the people before the profits of corporations and the super rich. Our platform is our foundation for building towns, cities and a state that work for all of us.

OPC is powered by volunteers around the state. We train community members to engage and mobilize their neighbors to take action on important issues and elections, run for office themselves, and build the collective power needed to win social, racial, environmental and economic justice.

OPC organizes the length and breadth of Illinois. In Chicago, our membership is concentrated in 8 wards: 49, 48, 47, 46, 44, 43, 40 and 32. This includes the neighborhoods of Rogers Park, Edgewater, Uptown, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, North Center, Lincoln Square and Ravenswood. The Statewide* footprint of OPC incudes Rockford, Galesburg, Galena, Peoria, Bloomington (all in the 17th) and Kankakee, Champaign/Urbana, Danville, Decatur and Ozark and Metropolis.
