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

Hollywood actresses have fans of their own – but that doesn’t mean they don’t know how to be fans themselves. Especially when it comes to places like Planned Parenthood.
At the 2017 Golden Globes Sunday evening, actress Tracee Ellis Ross won Best Actress in a TV comedy series for her role in ABC’s Black-ish. But People magazine focused instead on the 44-year-old’s jewelry.
On the red carpet, Ellis Ross flaunted a large silver ring on each finger. When People asked about her jewelry choice, she joked, “You know what happened? I flew to New York and I had them cover me in snow!”
“I’m hoping to abscond with them and buy a house,” Ellis Ross added. “I think I will hock them and give all the money to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. It’s that kind of year, folks."
