The Illinois People’s Action website only shows two staff – Don Carlson and Dawn Dannenbring: http://www.illinoispeoplesaction.org/our-staff.html
They are married to each other.
IPA members are not afraid to call themselves Democratic Socialists. Socialism has never worked anywhere, here is the proof it doesn’t even work for the locals:
That is a screen shot of Illinois People’s Action 2018 tax return. They received $176,706 from their like minded socialist buddies and churches.
$154,416 went to salaries
Is that for just the 2 staff people? That is how socialism always fails, the people at the top suck up all the money and never help the “little people”. Eventually the “little people” wise up.
See the entire tax return here: 2018 IPA tax return
I don’t see spending to help anybody. They did have $180,105 sitting in a bank at the end of the year. Maybe that’s a retirement account. Maybe members should ask – especially those contributing.
