Illinois Groups

When a small group of us came together back in 2019 to do the deep dive into 4G/5G technology, we realized the multiple threats that this technology could pose to our communities and knew immediately that we had to put a game plan in place. 

One of the first things we did was to reach out to the other groups who were already active in the fight and ask them to join forces.  In February 2020, we launched the Stop 5G Together Illinois Facebook group that quickly grew to over 5,000 members in just 5 months.  There are now 10 groups with over 13,000 members.

All of our groups are grassroots organizations that fully support the advancement of safety tested technology like fiber optics. Fiber optics would provide more safe and stable connections, much faster download speeds, and be more energy efficient than 5G wireless. The unfortunate truth is that for years, most of us have been paying fees on our phone bills for fiber optic infrastructure that was never delivered. Instead, telecom allocated funds toward the more profitable, less cost intensive deployment of untested, wireless 5G. Please visit our page about The Digital Divide to learn more and get to the truth about the risks of this technology. 

We invite you to join our email list and stay up to date on what is going on in our state.  Together we can create the positive change needed here in Illinois!
