Targeting Predators

Targeting Predators

For years, Attorney General Lisa Madigan has led the effort to pass tough laws targeting dangerous sexual predators and ensuring those who continue to pose a danger to society remain behind bars. In response to recent reports, she established a hotline (1-888-414-7678), staffed by trained professionals during business hours, for those who wish to report clergy abuse.

Reducing Gun Violence

Reducing Gun Violence

In communities across the state, too many are wounded or killed as a result of gun violence. While respecting Illinoisans' Second Amendment rights, Democrats are pushing for common sense policies that will keep firearms out of the hands of those with a history of violence and that crack down on straw-purchasers and illegal trafficking from other states.

Clean Air and Water

Clean Air and Water

Enforcement of the state's clean air and water laws has dropped significantly during the Rauner administration and Illinoisans are paying the price after Bruce Rauner hand-picked an energy industry lobbyist to serve as the director of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

Strong Consumer Protections

Strong Consumer Protections

Financial predators constantly look for ways to take advantage of Illinoisans. Attorney General Lisa Madigan has fought for years to hold scammers and businesses that cheat their customers accountable. Madigan helped secure a multibillion-dollar settlement from Volkswagen over its diesel emissions scandal, which violated the state's environmental laws.
