Rep. Danny K. Davis Visits Adler University’s Chicago Campus

University News | 09.09.19

U.S. Congressman Danny K. Davis, who represents the 7th Congressional District in Illinois, visited the Chicago Campus to speak to students, faculty, and staff on August 28.

Rep. Davis addressed issues from Washington D.C., including education and public safety. He and District Director Cherita Logan discussed with students the education bills that Rep. Davis plans to introduce in Congress, including two that address the Pell Grant, one that would alleviate student debt with bankruptcy declaration, and another that would improve education for homeless and foster youth.

“My challenge is to even the playing field so every person has the opportunity to pursue their goals,” said Rep. Davis. “That’s the promise of America.”

Rep. Davis, whose district includes part of the city of Chicago, also discussed mass incarceration, gun violence, and ideas for building community in the city.

“People have the capacity to solve many of the problems they face if they come together,” he said, encouraging students to help create change in their communities.

His talk was held during Common Hour, a weekly opportunity for Chicago Campus students, faculty, and staff to discuss topics related to Adler University’s mission to advance social justice.
