State’s Attorney Kim Foxx

In 2016, we helped Kim Foxx become the first female African-American State’s Attorney in the history of Cook County, Illinois.

Facing a well-funded, two-term incumbent in a multi-candidate primary, we knew it was more than just credentialing Kim as a gifted prosecutor in a city wracked with violence – we had to demonstrate to the communities most in need that Kim understood their plight in a deeply personal way.

By telling Kim’s story in a series of ads on broadcast television and online, we persuaded voters to replace the incumbent and support an advocate for progressive criminal justice reform.
