Hillary Colby has a 15 year history as a climate change activist. She spent years working to stop the growth of the fossil fuel infrastructure. In 2015, she attended her first Bernie 2016 campaign rally in Madison, Wisconsin and was hooked. Hillary volunteered with the grassroots campaign Illinois for Bernie as well as volunteering in the neighboring states of Wisconsin, Indiana and Iowa. She helped gather signatures in the 11th congressional district to get Bernie Sanders and his Delegates on the ballot. In 2016, Hillary served as a Delegate for Bernie Sanders at the 2016 DNC Convention.
In advance of the 2020 election, Hillary is eager to ensure that Illinois is ready for Bernie Sanders by building a statewide coalition so that folks from Gurnee to Carbondale will get involved to elect him as our next President.
