Advocating for Our Values and Our Communities.
As an elementary school teacher and community organizer, I have fought for fully-funded neighborhood schools, an elected representative school board, and an end to school closings. As an organizer with the Chicago Teacher's Union, I have been on the frontlines in the battle to bring good-paying jobs to our neighborhoods, eliminate barriers to success, and create more affordable housing.
As a mother and teacher, I know the importance of freeing our communities from violence and will work tirelessly to ensure our communities are safe for everyone.
I will work to stop billionaire Governor Bruce Rauner and his cronies from rigging the system to avoid paying their fair share of taxes while middle-class and working families pay the price. I will always put the interests of our communities ahead of the special interests of billionaires and big business.
