Over the past 10 years, SEIU Healthcare Illinois Indiana Missouri Kansas members have fought numerous battles to build a better world both in our workplaces and in our communities. Over the next few weeks we’ll unveil 10 videos that highlight 10 years of SEIU HCIIMK history & our vision for the future.

Video 1: Who We Are

We are unique. We are inclusive. We are BOLD.

This fight is a working class fight — we’re fighting for dignity and respect, living wages, and benefits for our members — as well as a fight to create better communities across our states and beyond. It’s about making bold demands in our quest for a society built on social, racial and economic justice.

While we’ve won, we know there are more battles ahead. Take a walk with us back through the last 10 years of historic struggles and hard won victories.

When we fight, we win!

Video 2: From Red to Blue – Winning Indiana

“SEIU taught me the most valuable lesson of my life – that is that ordinary people can do extraordinary things so long as they are organized, so long as they are mobilized, former President Barack Obama told a crowd in 2008 when he was on the campaign trail before he won a historic electoral victory.”

In this video, we take a look at how SEIU Healthcare members mobilized and organized on the campaign trail for Barack Obama, specifically in Indiana, and helped turn the traditionally red state blue. The state hadn’t voted for a Democrat since 1964.

When we fight, we win!

Video 3: Rescuing Child Care

In 2015, then-llinois Governor Bruce Rauner began a years-long attack on state-assisted child care. Child care providers – along with parents, allies, and their SEIU sisters and brothers – forced Rauner to captiulate and rescued child care. Now we’re fighting to get to #childcareforall and higher wages and free college for providers.

When we fight, we win!

Video 4: The Fight for Home Care

When Bruce Rauner tried to cut home care services, he didn’t understand who he was up against. We got everyone involved. Home care workers and those we serve not only stopped the cuts, we’ve since strengthened home care programs with raises and other victories.

When we fight, we win!
