The 13th District

About Senator Robert Peters

The 13th District is my home. It’s baked into my DNA. I am a proud product of Ray Elementary and Mount Carmel High School. It’s where I organized to raise the minimum wage and reform our broken bail system.

Our future shouldn’t require bootstraps, it should require community. Let’s organize a 21st century Illinois that works for all of us. Let’s rebuild, reinvest, and reimagine our communities.

We can show that people power is not some sort of utopian dream, but the real way forward.

Justice for All ✶ Real Public Safety ✶ Justice for All ✶ Real Public Safety ✶ Justice for All ✶ Real Public Safety

Whether you live in Peoria, Champaign, or Chicago, Illinois; real safety and justice for all means a good school in every neighborhood, a roof over our heads, it’s our family and friends, especially on a birthday or a holiday. When people think about their safest moments, when they close their eyes. They think about that one moment that makes them smile, that brings tears of joy, and our task is to give Illinoisans those moments as much as possible. That is safety. That is justice. That is dignity. That is the life we all deserve.

Our future shouldn’t require bootstraps, it should require community. Let’s organize a 21st century Illinois that works for all of us. Let’s rebuild, reinvest, and reimagine our communities.
