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 Illinois 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.  Fast forward to today, we are now 9 groups strong with over 12,700 members and growing stronger every day! 

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. 

Here are the groups working together in Illinois.  Please visit their pages and join their groups!

Don’t want 4G/5G cells going up in your front yard?  NOW is the time to pull together here in Illinois to finish what we started.  Join our email list and stand beside us on the front lines.  We make it super easy for you to do through our Call to Action program in which we ask you to take 60 seconds to copy and send an email to elected officials. Your emails help us to open the door to meet with officials, so we can make them aware of the risks and impacts to residents that are associated with this new wireless infrastructure. We must continue to educate our government officials on the truth behind the deployment of 4G/5G technology and then hold them accountable. 

Together we can create the positive change needed here in Illinois!
