Brandon Johnson for Mayor

The Center For Racial and Gender Equity is proud to announce our endorsement of Brandon Johnson for Mayor of Chicago. There couldn't be a clearer choice in this election.


Brandon has spent his career educating children and fighting for working-class families, while Paul Vallas has spent his career crippling public school districts in cities like Chicago, Philadelphia, Bridgeport Connecticut, and New Orleans.


Brandon is supported by a large and diverse set of organizations, from Jewish groups on the Northside, to Muslim organizations on the Southwest side. Vallas on the other hand, is supported by Chicago's Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), which counts known white supremacists among its ranks. Brandon Johnson is the only candidate that will create a city that is fair, equitable, and inclusive of all people.
