The Equality Illinois PAC endorses Ram Villivalam for state senator of Illinois’ 8th Senate district and urges voters to support him in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, March 20.
“Ram Villivalam will be a champion for all residents of the 8th district, including LGBTQ residents,” said John Litchfield, chair of the Equality Illinois PAC. “Villivalam’s record of pro-equality leadership speaks for itself. As Outreach Coordinator for U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider, he worked with legislative staff to introduce legislation that would protect and expand the rights of LGBTQ people. As Legislative Coordinator at SEIU Healthcare, Villivalam supported LGBTQ-affirming legislation on behalf of the union. We know he will be a champion for the LGBTQ residents of the 8th district.”
“At this time of heightened fear and anxiety about our civil rights, LGBTQ Illinoisans need their elected officials to be fighters. We know Villivalam will be that leader to help advance justice and equality for LGBTQ people, and we are proud to endorse him.”
