SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz, D-Northbrook, issued this statement following her appointment as whip of the House Asian American Caucus:

“I’m grateful for the privilege of leading the Asian American Caucus. With each General Assembly, Asian Americans are breaking barriers in Illinois and seeing their representation in the State Legislature grow. Asian American voices are getting louder through recent victories such as the passage of the TEAACH Act, my measure to ensure an accurate curriculum of Asian American history in Illinois schools. I hope to lead our growing caucus to continued legislative achievements.”
