Equal Rights Amendment Update
We are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!

The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

Illinois conservatives could find Kirk alternative in IL GOP primary

A businessman from Oswego, Illinois has stepped forward to challenge Illinois U.S. Senator Mark Kirk in the 2016 Illinois Republican Party - and he's building support among Illinois conservative Republicans and Tea Party activists.

Marter says he is "deeply concerned" with repealing Obamacare, wants to defund Planned Parenthood and would support prolife legislation.

That's in direct contrast to the incumbent Mark Kirk, acconding to Marter.
