CHICAGO (October 28, 2020) – The Progressive Caucus stands united in our support of Kim Foxx. Justice comes not with a presumption of guilt but with due process of law. We cannot go back to our old days of reactive law and order tactics and wrongful convictions. Kim has pushed reforms that not only keep our neighborhoods safe but also work to reform a corrupt and inefficient criminal justice system. Chicago is a leader in criminal justice reform because of Foxx’s efforts and we must continue to take a bold stand – we must stay the course. We trust Kim Foxx to be the honest, thoughtful, steadfast leader for criminal justice reform that Chicago needs now more than ever.
