Themes in Civil Rights Questions

As with many of the larger issue questions, those dealing with Civil Rights often fell into multiple categories, encompassing many economic, social welfare and healthcare concerns. Sometimes respondents cited specific groups for discussion (e.g. transgender) but more often just used an encompassing phrase such as “for all”.

What kind of programs would you support to ensure civil rights and justice for everyone?
What is your experience with privilege or oppression?  How can you encourage racial and class integration and empowerment in urban and rural areas of Illinois?

 

Other Themes

There were a few questions that fell outside the larger categories, but reflect important and specific issues to respondents. Two at the Federal level; Net Neutrality and Defense, and one at the local and state level; Animal Rights.

Where do you stand on Net Neutrality and why?
Do you have defense industry donors?
[Will you] reinstate ban on cruel steel trapping of Bobcats in IL?
