On Monday, Governor Bruce Rauner signed the Illinois TRUST Act into law at Mi Tierra in Little Village in Chicago. This historic legislation was the result of 8 months of efforts from all of the 85+ partners of the Campaign For A Welcoming Illinois to work with members from both parties and in both houses of the legislature, including Senate President John Cullerton and Representatives Chris Welch and Lisa Hernandez. Although we are overjoyed by this victory, the work is not done. Moving forward, we will continue to work to make Illinois a more Welcoming state for all.
