No endorsement of candidate made

Success - Article sent! close

The Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault strongly supports the Violence Against Women Act pending in Congress and deeply values the support of legislators prepared to vote for this critical legislation. However, contrary to information written in the article "Biggert sides with Dems to authorize Violence Against Women Act," appearing in the Daily Herald on Aug. 25, ICASA does not, nor has it ever, endorsed or given a "stamp of approval" to any political candidate in a race for elected office. As a 501(c)(3) tax exempt not-for-profit organization, ICASA is prohibited from endorsing any candidate for public office.
