Young states, “Pastor Chris is a man of faith, with a record of serving the community and building coalitions for over 25 years. I am aware with Pastor Chris’ work at the local, state, and national level, and I am confident that he will lead the district forward with the type of leadership that is needed at this time.”  Pastor Chris founded the Chicago Peace Campaign to organize churches and faith organizations to combat violence in our communities, as well as helped launch the AND (&) campaign, a nonprofit organization which promotes civic engagement nationwide.

“We can not say that we are committed to families, and not committed to safety.” Says Pastor Butler. “We must be able to call a well-supported, well-equipped, well-trained police department to help us enforce the laws.”  In addition, Pastor Chris has a vision to invest in prevention and intervention strategies to stop cycles of community violence.
