Equal Rights Amendment
Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe 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

Pro-life Activists to Hold Peaceful Sit-in and Risk Arrest
Quicken Loans Arena is where the Republican National Convention will be held the following week.
The activists will kneel on the steps of Quicken Loans Arena or in the streets directly in front of the Arena, being a voice for the 900 children that are violently killed through abortion every day at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics across America.
Groups will also ask that the $540,000,000 given to Planned Parenthood annually instead go to 13,000 federally licensed health clinics that provide true comprehensive women's health care.
This sit-in/pray-in is part of a three day campaign in Cleveland, from July 13-15, calling for the Republican Party to defund Planned Parenthood in their Party Platform.
