As we reflect on the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today, I am proud to have worked with Rep Thaddeus Jones to obtain $1 Million in funding for a Mobile Tolerance Bus.

The MMOT is a high-tech, traveling bus with theater seating and interactive technology that will provide world-class learning experiences for communities across Illinois. It will serve middle and high school students - with plans to educate over 30,000 students at 150 schools - as well as faith groups, law enforcement agencies, businesses, and government leaders throughout the state.

Topics will cover hate in America, anti-Semitism and bigotry, Holocaust and genocide, civil rights and more. Each session will be led by an experienced educator who introduces the content and leads the discussion. A classroom teacher will be responsible for preparing students with pre and post activities and assignments. MMOT educators have also developed extensive educational materials for teachers to use before and after the program.

The program will typically last 50 minutes, and will be able to accommodate one class at a time. During a typical school day, this would accommodate up to six classes per day.

Based on the world-renowned Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, the mission of the MMOT is to inspire people of all ages and background, empowering them to raise their voices and act against anti-Semitism, bullying, racism, hate and intolerance and to promote human dignity.

To reserve the MMOT for your school or community; please visit MMOT.com or for more information call the Simon Wiesenthal Center Midwest office at 312.981.0105.

Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs and Rep. Thaddeus Jones want you to know that most people are surprised to learn that the state might have their missing money or unclaimed property – and they don’t even know it.

How much money? More than $3.5 billion. You can see if your name is among the thousands who have missing money by clicking icash.illinoistreasurer.gov. Search your name, a relative’s name, the name of a business or the name of a non-profit.

Why might the treasurer have your money? Sometimes, a letter or check is mailed to the wrong address. Examples of unclaimed property include unpaid life insurance benefits, forgotten bank accounts and unused rebate cards. The state treasurer is legally required to return the property to the rightful owner no matter how long it takes.

Treasurer Frerichs and Rep. Jones are ready to help you.

My staff and I are here for you. Please give us a call at (708) 596-7053 or via email [email protected]. It is an honor to serve as your State Representative.

Here in Illinois, we are in phase 4 or reopening as of June 26th. I am proud of how we have come together as a community and throughout Illinois to fight the spread and flatten the curve. But it is as important as ever to continue looking out for each other. This means wearing your mask whenever out in public, maintaining a six foot distance whenever practical and thoroughly washing your hands. We need to maintain the progress that we have made together.

Is there a FB Live today on Children's Mental Health?
Happy Birthday
I just happened across this - http://www.repthaddeusjones.com/black_men_police_killings.htm I must say after seeing this, it would be VERY difficult to believe ANYTHING that YOU OR your office says ever again. While just researching ONE case I can absolutely prove that at LEAST ONE name on your list, DOES NOT BELONG THERE... Your stupid list, of course claims "Allegedly Armed" - DUDE, HE WAS ON F****** VIDEO - SHOWN BEING ARMED So again, it would be very difficult moving forward to believe ANYTHING you or your office have to say... Very despicable behavior, not expected of a "public servant"!
Good Job.. Congratulations State Representative 29th district Thaddeus Jones!!!!

Hello, I am wondering where Representative Jones stands on HB4870. -IL Voter
Representative Jones, what is your take on SB3668 & HB4870? Thank you for your time.
Illinois is in violation of the 2A. Thaddeus Jones should be removed from office for ignoring our constitutional rights.
Please rethink your stance at helping lawyers steal more from broken families by allowing more false orders of protection. You are promoting fatherless children all in the name of greed. Illinois HB 4789 is just a family killer. Any real abuse can and should be prosecuted in a court of law. Not the wild west of a family courtroom where no evidence is necessary and parents are immediately separated from their children.
Hello, inbox me just thinking of what going on with Kenneth! I know his friend percy Johnson died!
Mr. Jones, Although I am no longer a resident of Illinois, I want to thank you and support you in pushing for Balmoral Park to reopen. I for one will cross the state line to go to Balmoral Park along with family and many friends that are horse racing fans. Thank you again.
