Ameena Matthews for Congress

My name is Ameena Matthews and I am running for Congress in the 1st District of Illinois. My years of dedication as a Community Organizer, a Violence Interrupter and a Humanitarian have shown me that we desperately need a change in leadership in Chicago.


We must move forward. We need increases in economic development and the availability of good jobs for our community. We need an increase in childhood development programs that are available to all our children in order to prepare for the future and give them a head start. We need to end the School-to-Prison pipeline, to give our kids an education and a chance to develop their skills and talents rather than punishment and incarceration. We need Criminal Justice Reform, accountability and a system that works equitably for all citizens. We need to move out of neutral and onto the road towards a brighter, better future, for all of us.


This is the change I want to bring as your representative in Congress. This is the change I will create for Chicago, for our communities, for our children, and for our future.


But I can’t do it alone. I need your support. Your donation, no matter the size, will help us get there. I want to thank each and everyone of you in advance for believing in me by contributing to my campaign.
