Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton

Juliana Stratton is the lieutenant governor of Illinois.

From 2018 to 2020, Black women in Illinois were three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related medical conditions than white women. This initiative aims to make improvements.
I’m proud of the work Illinois has done to protect reproductive rights, Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton writes. As a mother, I know the fight isn’t over to protect rights for the next generation.
Each year, we train a class of 12 women and provide them with expertise and support to put together winning campaigns.
This is a governor who couldn’t even initially muster up the courage to call a Grand Wizard of the KKK a racist.
