A few days ago, I had the privilege to celebrate with Toni Preckwinkle, Representative Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz, and advocates to celebrate the passing of HB 2790. Immigrants deserve the support of public defenders when facing a trial, and the first step to achieve a fair process is proper legal counsel. This legislation gets us closer to achieve equity and fairness in our society, and for that, I'm grateful.

Today we remember the revolutionary that was Fred Hampton, who was an activist, organizer, and chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party. In his short life, Hampton brought people of diverse backgrounds together and fought for social change. Though he was killed at the age of 21, his impact is still remembered where he grew up in Maywood, and all over the world.

Chicago mourns fallen Officer Ella French; 3 suspects in West Englewood shooting in custody

Our city and the community mourn the loss of our hero, Ella French, who was killed in a senseless act of violence. My condolences to her family and her loved ones. Also, we pray for the well-being of her partner officer that was wounded in the same incident. As a community, we are stronger when we work with our law enforcement officers. They face dangerous ways when performing their duties, and some pay the ultimate sacrifice as Ms. French did.

Chicago continues to mourn 29-year-old Officer Ella French while her partner remains hospitalized.
