WGN Spotlights Kim Foxx, Adler Trustee and Cook County State’s Attorney

In the Media | 01.08.18

Kimberly Foxx, Cook County State’s Attorney and Adler University trustee, was featured on WGN for her many achievements in community building, public safety, and criminal justice.

Foxx took office on December 1, 2016, with a vision for transforming the agency into a fairer, more forward-thinking organization, according to the report. She has since worked tirelessly to rebuild public trust, promote transparency, and improve safety in communities.

“Kim’s passion for public service is deeply personal,” the article says. “She spent her early childhood growing up in the Cabrini Green public housing complex, raised by her teenage mother and grandmother. Her life experiences gave her insight on the impact of crime, violence and poverty on our communities. That consciousness inspired Kim to pursue a career in public service as she sought to improve life in communities like the one in which she was raised.”

In addition to the Adler University Board of Trustees, Foxx serves on the board of Free Spirit Media, where she was formerly president. She also spent time as the board chair of Planned Parenthood of Illinois, and president of the National Black Prosecutors Association’s Chicago chapter.
