Illinois Conservative Union is pleased to host United We Stand 2021, the 5th Annual Illinois Conservative Grassroots Activist Conference. This is an Illinois-specific, action-oriented event. Those who have attended this conference in the past know is not just "more talk"! Every attendee will find new tools for their "activist toolbox", and learn how to use them to greatest effect.

This one-day conference begins with check-in at 8:30 am and a continental breakfast (included). Program begins at 9 am.

To replenish your toolbox this year the action sessions include:

  • Laura Zorc, Director of Education Reform for FreedomWorks BEST program (Building Education for Students Together) will cover how to push back against local board overreach and address concerns about mandates being imposed on children. 
  • David Zalar (AMAC) will introduce a new app from developer Vocal Company LLC to alert concerned Illinois citizens when critical legislation is coming up in Springfield. This app enables activists to take action quickly and effectively.
  • Linda Memmesheimer of Think Wholistic will tell us how we can leverage heavy-handed government tactics regarding our health to WIN OVER natural health advocates who are questioning their loyalty to the Left. She'll also include strategies for strengthening our immune systems.
  • Effectively hold government accountable using the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act)

Also included is the ICU Election Integrity Seminar, Guardians of the Vote. This comprehensive seminar is educating and inspiring activists across the state. What attendees are saying about the ICU Guardians program:

  • "What a great presentation on Saturday! Thanks again to all the voter integrity members of the ICU team. You are helping to save America."
  • "I started the hourly voter log which your training suggested. All the election judges loved it! Your briefing was invaluable! Thanks.”
  •  "Thanks for a great presentation. We don’t spend nearly enough time devoted to actionable remedies such as the ones you teach. Keep up the good work.”
  • "Just a quick note to say thank you for your presentation last night. Not only was it was very informative but it opened a lot of committeeman's eyes to the serious issues we are facing. Please feel free to come back anytime and give us updates or new solutions we can implement. Your time and insight is much appreciated!"

Lunch is included in your conference package along with time to visit sponsors and exhibitors, build new contacts and catch up with friends.

Throughout the day we will offer candidates in state-wide races a chance to speak about what they will do to take back our state for We the People. All candidates will have their name and the office they are seeking announced so perspective constituents can say “Hi” to you during breaks.

(Invitations to candidates to speak will be based upon the candidate’s alignment and/or voting record with the Illinois Conservative Union's values. Since there will be limited time available during the conference, ICU reserves the right to limit the number of candidates speaking. The decision regarding which candidates may speak is at the sole discretion of ICU.)

Illinois Conservative Union is pleased to announce that our 2021 “Unsung Hero” Awardees are John Kraft and Kirk Allen. Kraft and Allen are also known as The Edgar County Watchdogs. They are being honored for their ongoing work in exposing government overreach regarding the Covid pandemic during the past 18+ months. Their work in hunting down the facts, sorting facts from fiction, and bringing to light real solutions arising to resolve problems has proven to be invaluable to many. Their research is shared far and wide.

The Unsung Hero Award will be presented at the dinner banquet (included with your conference package) during the ICU 5th Annual Conservative Grassroots Activist Conference on Saturday, October 23, 2021. Following the presentation of this year’s award, Kirk Allen will be the keynote speaker.
