“We will not sit silently by as a small gang of disgruntled men disgrace their uniforms by attacking the first black woman to be Cook County’s top prosecutor for doing the job she was elected to do,” Rev. Jackson said. “We will not allow them to derail the will of the voters. We the people elected Kim Foxx to do and be exactly what she is – a progressive, fair and just guardian of the people and the law. We have total and absolute confidence in Kim Foxx.”
Among those scheduled to join Rev. Jackson and State’s Attorney Foxx are Rev. Otis Moss III, attorney Flint Taylor, Urie R. Clark, president of the Cook County Bar Association and others.
