Illinois Assyrian Caucus

20 Members of the Illinois General Assembly working together to advance the Assyrian-American community’s priorities and advance opportunity and growth for all.

The Illinois Assyrian Caucus was convened to bring together Members of the Illinois General Assembly from disparate jurisdictions to strengthen coordination to advocate for Illinois’s Assyrian American community—providing a unified voice and platform to educate the public on Assyrian American identity and issues. This bipartisan forum will exchange ideas and develop strategies to identify opportunities for the growth and advancement of the Assyrian American community in Illinois. Illinois is the first in the nation to establish a statewide caucus on Assyrian issues.
 
Members of the Illinois Assyrian Caucus play a key role in advancing the interests of the Assyrian American community in Illinois—both in the General Assembly and in public discourse.
