Get Involved - ILGP Chapters

A local Green Party chapter is your best tool for getting directly involved with the Illinois Green Party. If there is no local chapter in your area, consider starting one yourself! Our New Chapter Packet contains instructions on how to form a new chapter, along with a fillable one-page form that meets all the requirements for requesting formal affiliation with the ILGP. (For the form as a separate PDF, or other chapter-building materials, see the "Resources - For Chapters" subpage.)

If you receive no reply from a chapter contact listed on this site within five business days, please email and to let us know which chapter you're trying to contact.
