CHICAGO — The Healthy Illinois Campaign announces the departure of campaign director Tovia Siegel, who will be transitioning out of her role after more than two years leading the organization. Under Siegel, Healthy Illinois led advocacy efforts to expand healthcare coverage to undocumented immigrants ages 42-54, implement coverage expansions for immigrants ages 42-54 and 55-64, facilitate the enrollment of more than 50,000 people in health coverage and win state budget appropriations totaling more than $1.2 billion for immigrant health coverage across three legislative sessions.

“I am immensely grateful and proud to have worked with so many amazing people and organizations in the fight for healthcare for all,” Siegel said. “Together, we have made incredible strides toward ensuring everyone in Illinois can access high quality healthcare no matter their income or immigration status. We have also maintained a united coalition, developed grassroots leaders, shared countless stories and built deep relationships. This work positions us well to continue the fight in years to come.”

Later this summer, Siegel will start a new role as director of organizing and leadership at The Resurrection Project, which is a member of the Healthy Illinois Campaign. Healthy Illinois will be hiring a new campaign director. Interested applicants can learn more and apply here. In the interim, media and other requests for the Healthy Illinois Campaign can be directed to MaríaVerónica Garibay at
