I am not a career politician. I am a mother, a former elementary educator, and a community activist. I found my voice advocating for change as a leader of my local Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America group. Raising my voice - whether it be to keep guns out of our schools, or strengthening our federal background check laws - has become a way of life. My commitment to education, dedication to community service, and strong belief in advocacy led me to run for office. In November of 2020 I was honored to be elected State Representative by the people of the 49th District, and I brought empathetic leadership to the Illinois statehouse.

In my first term I have passed 14 bills that the Governor has signed into law. These bills encompassed important policy topics such as gun violence prevention and safety; protections for survivors of sexual assault; support for students with disabilities; tools and support for undocumented students; changes to the pension system, and much more.
The COVID-19 pandemic and now escalating inflation are hurting Illinois families. People across our state and country are feeling pain at the gas pump and grocery store. In the 2022 state budget I worked with my colleagues to permanently expand the Earned Income Tax Credit by adding 2% to the federal level. Under democratic leadership more people are eligible for refundable credit. The 2022 budget also provided relief to Illinoisans by suspending the grocery tax for a year-saving consumers $400 million; freezing the gas tax for 6 months-saving consumers $70 million; and doubling the property tax rebate to save up to $300 per household.

This year my colleagues in the General Assembly and I worked hard to get Illinois’ fiscal house in order by paying down $4B in unpaid bills and adding $500M in pension stabilization. The result is better credit ratings, lower interest payments, and greater flexibility to focus on priorities for Illinois families.
Protecting and supporting the economic health of our community is my top priority. I strive to foster and maintain an economy that serves the hard working people in the 49th district who feel the heavy burden of property taxes. Many families in our district are struggling to make ends meet. I am committed to helping families access affordable daycare and expanding Early Childhood Education services.

I am committed to ending the public health epidemic of gun violence. Gun violence is a multifaceted and complex issue that must be addressed on ALL fronts like: enacting common sense gun safety laws, supporting law enforcement with the tools and technology they need to solve gun crimes and track illegally trafficked guns, and funding housing support, mental health, community based violence intervention programs, and education. We cannot ignore the fact that the rise in gun violence is related to easy access to firearms. Gun sales in IL hit record heights during the pandemic. It must stop.
