State Matters Launch Party

Join State Matters for their launch party and first annual fundraiser! They will have all of your favorite things: music, food, community, brand new content, and a drawing you will not want to miss (seriously, keep an eye out as we announce some of our prizes over the coming weeks).

Come meet the State Matters team and get to know fellow supporters who are making this work possible. You’ll hear from the State Matters’ co-founders, discover their latest content, and learn about their plans for the rest of the year (including videos around the midterm elections)!

State Matters is a nonprofit committed to accessibility and inclusivity. While this is a fundraiser, we are offering tiered ticket prices to make sure that everyone who wants to come, can. So please, pay what you are able! 100% of the funds raised from this fundraiser will go towards our video content. *If you are unable to purchase a ticket but want to attend, email info@​statematters.​org

What is State Matters?

State Matters is a new nonprofit education tool that connects people to state and local government through simple communication and engaging content that helps people understand how state government works.

We work with artists across Illinois to create high quality, engaging videos and graphics that (a) explain the most impactful, state legislation being proposed in Springfield, (b) explain the legislative process and how government operates, © inform constituents how to engage with state legislators.

Our focus on creative presentation will make this information appealing and enjoyable for folks who want to care, but didn’t get a good civics education and don’t have the time or energy to unravel in-depth journalism or complicated legislative lingo. We’re creating content that will be informative and interesting – content that will make learning about civics a viable and pleasurable part of everyday life.
