Welcome to the website of State Representative Christian Mitchell of Illinois' 26th District, and thank you for your interest in our state's government.  Here, you can stay informed about my work and the work of the General Assembly in Springfield, and share your thoughts and feedback.


I am a resident of the Bronzeville community and a lifelong Chicagoan.  A graduate of the University of Chicago, I began my career in public service as a faith-based community organizer in the south suburbs and South Side.  I continue that service in Springfield, representing the 26th District in the General Assembly, where I fight for the citizens of our district and all of Illinois through a fair budget, smarter gun laws, more equitable education policy, and a government that recognizes and seeks to protect the rights of all of its citizens. 

The 26th District of Illinois stretches along the Lakefront from the Gold Coast to 91st Street.  It includes some parts of communities such as the Near North Side’s Streeterville area, some parts of the Loop, Bronzeville, Hyde Park, South Shore and South Chicago area.

We want to hear your thoughts and feedback.  Together, we can move Illinois forward.
