Carol Ammons has dedicated her life to public service as an organizer and advocate for the people of Illinois. She has a combined fourteen years of service in elected office, at the county level on the Champaign County Board, city level on the Urbana City Council, and now state level as state Representative for the 103rd district, which includes Champaign-Urbana.
Carol is the first African-American elected to represent the 103rd and will bring her experiences as a grassroots community organizer for equality in education, media, and technology access and civil rights to her work as a public servant in the House of Representatives.
Carol has demonstrated her commitment and ability to work effectively as an elected official on the state and local level. She has consistently been a leading voice for meaningful policy changes that positively impact our most marginalized community members. In her first term as State Representative, Carol was extremely successful in passing legislation with bipartisan support.
Your voice truly matters and this is a great way to be heard. Community Advisory Panels assist in monitoring the bills that are being introduced, assessing them for how they will impact the 103rd district, and developing legislation. Interested in joining the conversation? There are many ways to participate.
In November of 2014 voters elected the first African-American and African-American female state Representative of the 103rd District. This was made possible because over 200 volunteers knocked on more than 20,000 doors, made more than 16,000 phone calls, sent out 2,500 thank you cards, and registered more than 2,500 voters.
