How We Build Power
Racial Justice PAC (RJ PAC) invests in long term relationships with communities across Illinois to grow a powerful statewide electorate that will mobilize in support of progressive candidates who share our values of racial equity, justice, and liberation.
RJ PAC has built a robust field campaign infrastructure that allows us to engage in meaningful ways with voters before, during, and after each election cycle. We are also an established leader in the realm of digital organizing. By quickly adapting to an ever changing technological landscape, RJ PAC is able to effectively reach a broad and diverse spectrum of voters.
We support candidates who stand with our communities.
Racial Justice PAC mobilizes voters behind candidates who are committed to advancing opportunity for Black workers, securing child care for all, and ending racialized systems of policing and mass incarceration. Once elected, we work to ensure that office holders champion our key policy priorities, and hold elected officials accountable to their campaign commitments.

Support the Movement
Racial Justice PAC is taking on powerful people, institutions, and systems that harm our communities. One thing these entities have in common is that they are well funded. The fight against moneyed interests is more winnable when we, too, have resources to effectively support candidates who will champion the interests and priorities of our communities.
