“As a county board, we are responsible for protecting the health and safety of the residents of Will County,” said County Board Speaker Denise Winfrey (D-Joliet). “Hatred, whether of race, religion or sexual orientation is dangerous. Our County will not tolerate it in any of our communities.”
The County Board continually works to promote inclusiveness and equality. In January an Imam was invited to give the opening invocation at the County Board Meeting.
There is no place for symbols or acts of hate in our communities,” said County Board Member Jim Moustis (R-Frankfort).
