In preparation for the 2020 primary election held on March 17th, the Faith in Place Action Fund circulated a questionnaire to all candidates running for State Representative or State Senator in Illinois. This is part of our effort to inform and educate voters about how various candidates respond to the issues most important to us. Specifically, we asked about preventing climate change, promoting job creation and a just economy, advocating for water justice, tackling food justice and scarcity, and supporting the Clean Energy Jobs Act. The following candidates committed to action in each of those issue areas :
In addition to the questionnaires, the Faith in Place Action Fund’s Board sat down with candidates for the 13th Senate District. After interviewing both candidates, we are excited to announce that we have endorsed Senator Robert Peters for reelection! Senator Peters has been a faithful advocate for our planet and a champion of environmental justice. We urge all voters in the 13th District to support Senator Peters on March 17th!
