Equal Rights Amendment

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

Marches for Life in Chicago and Springfield

March for Life in Chicago
Activists - encouraged by signals that the incoming presidential administration and Republican majority in Congress will tilt federal policy back towards protecting human life - will once again brave the cold in Chicago and Springfield to show their support later this month.

The annual March for Life Chicago will start at 2:00 PM at Chicago's Federal Plaza. After a rally, the attendees will march on a planned one-mile route, returning to the Plaza.

Another March for Life will be held in Springfield Friday the 20th, starting at St Katharine Drexel Parish House on 12th Avenue at 1:30 PM.

Starting at 2 PM on January 22, a Re-commitment to Life rally will be held at the State Capitol.

The marches are held annually near the anniversary Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States in 1973.
