Disability Candidates Forum:

Illinois Attorney General

DISABILITY CANDIDATES FORUM:
ILLINOIS ATTORNEY GENERAL

February 9, 2018

Disability organizations across the state hosted candidates for Illinois Attorney General for a non–partisan discussion of state disability issues (see list of supporting groups below). The Illinois primary election will be on March 20, so we want disability advocates to know the views of candidates. This event was the second of TWO disability forums; the previous one was for candidates for Governor of Illinois on January 18.
