What is L.E.A.P Day?
L.E.A.P. day, namely February 29, 2016, is a special day on which
we would like you, your friends, relatives and anyone else you know in
Illinois to contact legislative representatives in their local offices
and 'Educate' them about the importance of our pensions. Contact
can be in person (the best way), by letter, by phone or any other means
you deem effective. Even though we employ Legislative Advocates,
they are only 2 or 3 voices while we are the voices of thousands of
individuals, each with a personal story of the importance of our
Don't know who your Illinois legislators are or where their local
offices are located? Go
and enter your 9 digit zip code, then click 'Find Address' and, after
your address is found, click 'Confirm Address'. Most of
local and national legislators will be displayed.
Because the legislature is in
session starting in early January and there is the possibility that
harmful legislation could be introduced before our L.E.A.P. day, we may
ask for your help at any time. Please note that our
legislative advocates will be constantly on
the alert from the first day of the legislative session for any signs
of legislation that may impair or reduce our benefits. If harmful
legislation is introduced, your help would be ABSOLUTELY VITAL as your
voices are MANY and our advocates are few.
