CRGE and BlackRoots Alliance Endorses Daniel Biss for Governor of Illinois

The Center for Racial and Gender Equity (CRGE) and our PAC, the BlackRoots Resistance, is proud to endorse State Senator Daniel Biss for Governor of Illinois. We encourage all our members, supporters, allies to vote for Senator Biss in the Democratic Primary. Early voting begins on February 8, and the primary is being held on Tuesday March 20, 2018.

As an organization committed to and fighting for the liberation of Black people, ending patriarchy and bringing about full equity for marginalized women of color, we believe Daniel and his running mate Litesa Wallace are the best candidates to help bring economic equity and justice to our communities. Daniel wants to fully fund public education in the state so that Black children on the Southside of Chicago have the same quality education as White children in Highland Park. Daniel also supports tuition-free college for every student in the state, a Medicare for All system, and a fundamental transformation of the criminal justice system, which has unfairly targeted Black communities for decades.

This is one of the most important elections of our lifetimes. We can't afford another fours years of an out of touch, billionaire governor with no connections to real people, and no empathy or compassion for Black communities.

Stand with the CRGE and the BlackRoots Resistance and support Daniel Biss for governor.
