The Human Face of Illinois’ Ongoing Budget Crisis

Reader donations, many as small as just $1, have kept In These Times publishing for 45 years. Once you've finished reading, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support this work.

We are excited to release the trailer for Stranded by the State, a new video series uncovering the human toll of Illinois’ ongoing budget crisis. This new collaboration between In These Times and Kartemquin Films will follow the families, workers and students living through the de facto budget cuts, showing the ways it deteriorates the fabric of Illinois communities.
