Join me in the fight to achieve liberty and justice for all

Anthony Clark is a military veteran, special education high school teacher and founder of the Suburban Unity Alliance. He believes it’s time this country lives up to its promise of liberty and justice for all. Anthony is here to work with you in the fight for medicare for all, criminal justice reform, public education reform and responsible job creation.

“In order to truly make a difference in this world, we have to change things on a systemic level. We can’t keep being reactive.”

In the wealthiest nation in the world, we should all have the things we need to thrive.

The political establishment have monopolized our wealth and power for long enough. The American people are ready for a new movement that creates systemic change. We can't expect establishment politicians like Danny Davis, who benefit from maintaining the status quo, to treat root causes, and fight for people. I am part of a national movement to create a democracy that works for all of us.

Justice, Jobs, and Education

Raised in Oak Park, Illinois, to a working class family, Anthony Clark is a military veteran, high school special education teacher and active community organizer. In the summer of 2016, Anthony founded the Suburban Unity Alliance, an organization dedicated to combating discrimination by raising awareness and bringing communities together based on common interests and community goals. He believes it’s time this country lives up to its promise of liberty and justice for all.

Anthony is here to work with you in the fight for medicare for all, criminal justice reform, public education reform and responsible job creation. As your congressman representing Illinois’ 7th district, he will be your voice in Washington that insists healthcare is a human right and will work to fulfill your hope for a better future.

As Anthony's grandfather Choom often quoted from Muhammad Ali, "Service to others is the rent you pay for room here on earth." and Anthony believes it's time to rent to own.

What We Can Achieve Together

End Corruption

Super PACs should be banned, private donations to politicians and campaigns should be banned, and a clean public financing system should be implemented to end the takeover of our government by corporations and billionaires. Americans deserve free and fair elections — free from the corruption of big money donors. The Supreme Court has effectively legalized bribery.

Create Medicare For All

The United States should catch up to every other modern nation and implement a single-payer, medicare-for-all system. There’s no reason we can’t be #1 in the world instead of #37. It’s time to end the destruction of American healthcare by rapacious, price gouging, for-profit, private health insurance middlemen.

Create A Just Justice System

It's time to end our for-profit criminal justice system by ending prison labor, private prisons and detention centers, cash bail systems, and all the other ways our criminal justice system profits off the vulnerable.

Create free public higher education

In America, every child deserves a chance to succeed. A college education should be a right, not a privilege. Educating the citizenry of a nation pays dividends in the long run, with the economy getting back much more than is initially put in. Crushing student debt for higher education would no longer burden young men and women trying to improve their lives through hard work. We should strive to have the best education system in the world.

Raise the Minimum Wage

This is about justice and basic human decency. If you work hard and you work full time you shouldn’t live in poverty. Furthermore, we support strong unions and collective bargaining.
