“The AJC Radio family is growing every week, because America wants to be informed about the accomplishments of our Members of Congress in Washington D.C., says Lamont Banks, A Just Cause’s Executive Director. Our unique radio segment allows our elected officials an opportunity to share with America their achievements, their goals, and discuss the issues closest to their heart,” adds Banks.
“It was an absolute pleasure to meet with Congressman Davis in Washington and discuss the issues facing America today. He’s a powerful voice for the people in the United States Congress, because he genuinely wants to do the right thing and make a difference for the citizens of this country,” explains Banks. "As a resident of Chicago, Illinois, Congressman Davis is not oblivious to the serious matters involving crime and punishment, or the catastrophic consequences it has on families in his district and across our nation. AJC Radio hosts will examine some of the issues that weigh heavily on Congressman Davis, and the legislation necessary to change the current system, in order to have a fair and balanced system of justice for all," adds Banks.
According to his official website, “Danny K. Davis was chosen by the people of the 7th Congressional District of Illinois as their Representative in Congress on November 5, 1996. He has been re-elected by large majorities to succeeding Congresses… In the 113th Congress, Representative Davis serves on Oversight and Government Reform including subcommittees: Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory Affairs; Energy Policy, Health Care and Entitlements; and Subcommittee on Human Resources and the Committee on Ways and Means including the Subcommittee on Oversight. Congressman Davis is a member of several Congressional Caucuses including the Congressional Black Caucus, the Progressive Caucus, the Urban Caucus, the Community Health Center's Caucus, and the Congressional Sugar Caucus.

“We’re excited to have this exclusive interview with Congressman Danny Davis on AJC Radio,” adds Lisa Stewart of A Just Cause. “The congressman’s tenacity and candid approach speaks volumes to his unyielding passion for the people of this country. His dedication is characterized by the legislation he introduces and supports on Capitol Hill,” concludes Stewart.
“Congressman Davis has distinguished himself as an articulate voice for his constituents and as an effective legislator able to move major bills to passage. He has developed a unique and energetic style of communication and interaction with his constituents setting up dozens of advisory task forces to consider significant questions of public policy. He hosts several weekly television and radio shows which feature audience call in and produces regular written reports to every household in the district. In addition, he maintains weekly office hours in the district and is widely sought after as a speaker at district events… In the 113th Congress Representative Davis has indicated a focus on issues of job creation, poverty, health care, education, youth and criminal justice reform.” (https://davis.house.gov/biography/)

He is concerned about our youth, our economy, and criminal justice reform,” says Banks. "There are not enough good things to say about Congressman Danny Davis.
