Trustee Kimberly Foxx Writes About Gun Violence in Chicago Sun-Times

In the Media | 01.09.19

Kimberly Foxx, a Trustee at Adler University and Cook County State’s Attorney, joined former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to write an opinion piece for the Chicago Sun-Times. Foxx shared insight on how Chicago’s gun violence impacts communities on both psychological and physical levels. The authors emphasized the need for developing new strategies for the issue of gun violence.

“Let’s end this cycle of using the same tactics over and over, expecting different results and take a page from our peer cities and adapt an approach that works. … Chicagoans deserve a legitimate investment to reduce violence, and it is our belief that that means $150 million every year from the city, county, state and federal government to fund coordinated, comprehensive public health and safety resources in the 15 communities at the highest risk for violence.”
