"State Senator Kwame Raoul was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 30, 1964, to Haitian-born immigrants Janin Raoul, M.D. and Marie Therese Raoul. His personal commitment to the people of the South Side of Chicago was fostered early in his life by the work of his father, who served as a physician to the Woodlawn, North Kenwood, Grand Boulevard and Englewood communities for over thirty years. Kwame is a lifelong resident of the Hyde Park/Kenwood area, where he lives with his wife Kali, son Che (7) and daughter Mizan (4).


Senator Raoul earned his Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from DePaul University and a law degree from Chicago-Kent College of Law in 1993. His formative instruction, from kindergarten through high school (at Ancona School, Harvard St. George and the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools), took place in the very area he now serves in the Illinois Senate.


As a former Cook County Prosecutor and now Senior Attorney for the City Colleges of Chicago, Senator Raoul is a career advocate for the neighborhoods comprising the 13th Senate District. Partnering with Aldermen Toni Preckwinkle and Leslie Hairston, Senator Raoul has served as the director of volunteer legal clinics in each Ward. During his private practice he successfully represented indigent clients, protected their civil liberties and ensured that those in need received required human services."
