Dear friend,

It’s been a busy few weeks as the Senate reconvened in Springfield to address measures during our fall session. From investing in the electric vehicle industry to protecting workers throughout the state, the General Assembly passed various measures to help our state move forward.

Read more about the work I did during last week, and explore resources that may be a help to you below.

Additionally, the CDC has officially recommended the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children 5-11 years old. Vaccinating children will help protect them from getting COVID-19 and help reduce their risk of severe disease, hospitalizations, or developing long-term COVID-19 complications. Roll out of vaccines for children will begin this week. Find vaccination options near you and learn more here.

As always, feel free to call my office at 773-278-2020, send a text message to 773-207-7838, or send us a note at www.senatorpacionezayas.com/contact-us to set up an appointment in our district office at 3140 W. Montrose Ave. We are here to serve!

Sincerely,

State Senator Cristina Pacione-Zayas | 20th District

CPZ 102821SPRINGFIELD – To give parents and students in the Chicago Public Schools a stronger voice in how they operate, State Senator Cristina Pacione-Zayas (D-Chicago) sponsored a measure to further empower Local School Councils in Chicago while the Board of Education transitions to an elected school board.

“With the passage of the historic Chicago School Reform Act in 1988, Chicago Public Schools leads the nation in facilitating participatory democracy for students, community members and parents through the vehicle of Local School Councils,” Pacione-Zayas said. “By expanding student representation, restoring LSC powers, and transitioning appointed Local School Councils to elected bodies, we are providing greater inclusion and opportunity to increase equity to best serve local school communities.”

102721CM0188SPRINGFIELD – Following the Senate passage of the Youth Health and Safety Act, State Senator Cristina Pacione-Zayas released the following statement:

“Illinois continues to support reproductive health and provide people a safe haven to exercise their right to choose. While states like Texas continuously strip this right away, today we stand in solidarity with young pregnant people who might not have an adult family member to safely go to about an unplanned pregnancy.

“An unplanned pregnancy can be daunting for anyone, especially for a young pregnant person in an unsafe and unstable living situation. Solutions that help young pregnant people get the support they need will allow them to make the personal health decisions that are best for them.”
