Why Andrea is Running

Andrea Zopp has spent her life being an agent of change. Fighting for stronger communities, better schools, and safer streets.

As the CEO & President of the Chicago Urban League, Andrea fought to increase opportunity for small businesses and entrepreneurs striving to recover from the Great Recession.

As the first woman and first African-American to serve as First Assistant State’s Attorney in Cook County, and as a prosecutor in the US Attorney’s office, she fought to keep our neighborhoods safe by taking on illegal guns, violent crime and criminal organizations; and worked to protect victims of domestic violence.

Our families across Illinois deserve a Senator who will create opportunity for our working families, stand up for our civil rights, and ensure that every child has the chance to succeed in the 21st century.
