A Message from Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul
It has been an honor to serve the people of the State of Illinois as the 42nd Attorney General for the past two years. Our office has consistently advocated on behalf of Illinois and its people by protecting consumers, defending our rights, and collaborating with the law enforcement community to help keep our communities and children safe.
The responsibilities of the Attorney General, to defend and advocate for the state and its people, were brought into sharp focus with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Despite the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, our staff immediately moved into action to adapt our operations to meet the needs of Illinois residents, while also keeping our employees safe. Our attorneys and staff answered thousands of calls from consumers about price gouging and from workers concerned about COVID-19 safety practices in their workplaces. Our attorneys also fought to uphold the Governorís actions to keep Illinois residents safe in accordance with public health guidance.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has created unique challenges to serving as the Attorney General, our office continues to provide ongoing support and services to the people and communities across Illinois. This report reflects the hard work and dedication of the attorneys and staff of the Attorney Generalís office. I could not be more thankful for their dedication and service, and I look forward to continuing to build on our accomplishments.
