Cook County Democrats Slate Attorney General and Pass Sexual Harassment Resolution

11/03/2017

"Thank you to all the committeemen who unanimously endorsed State Senator Kwame Raoul for Attorney General. These times call for a strong Attorney General who isn't afraid to take on Governor Rauner and President Trump, who has declared war against women, children, families, undocumented immigrants, and our safeguards. I am confident that Kwame will be a true advocate for our families in Illinois."

“I am also very proud of the step that we took today as a party by passing a sexual harassment resolution. Any and all allegations of sexual harassment and assault against women need to be taken very seriously and should never be tolerated. I urge for the quick passage of SB 402 that calls for mandatory harassment training for all lawmakers, staff, and lobbyist.”
