On the issues
Ensuring access to healthcare for all has been the core of Robyn’s professional career – from leading the expansion of Medicaid coverage for hundreds of thousands of women and children to advocating for proper support for Illinoisans with developmental disabilities. She believes healthcare is a right and is skilled at coalition building to achieve bold goals.
As Chair of the Illinois Green Legislative Caucus and Vice-chair of the Energy and Environment Committee, State Representative Robyn Gabel is a champion for our environment. She believes future generations deserve a healthy environment regardless of their economic status, and fights to protect our precious natural resources.
Robyn believes that our democracy is based on “one person, one vote”. She has successfully made Illinois a national leader on voting access and expanded rights for the most marginalized. Robyn knows good policy thrives when government is operating with efficiency and accountability.
State Representative Robyn Gabel wholeheartedly fights for the interests of our district in Springfield. She is a stalwart defender of the rights of women, voters, and those impacted by the justice system. Robyn continuously works to reform our healthcare system and human services delivery to make sure no one falls through the cracks in the social services safety net. She builds coalitions to protect our neighborhoods from gun violence and our environment from degradation and overuse.
The Work Continues
Attempts to pillage our public natural resources for private gain, to control the way women feel, think, and act, to disenfranchise voters and re-segregate minority populations, to devalue the health and lives of neighbors based on differences of race, gender, creed, or sexuality, to minimize the threat of the Covid19 pandemic are an ongoing occurrence with the current administration in Washington, DC. We need to come together to stop their destructive agendas and build a bulwark of good governance and common sense that can withstand these attacks in Illinois. We need effective and thoughtful people in every layer of government. We need to re-elect Robyn Gabel because she has a proven track record of preserving the rights and protections of our most vulnerable populations.
