Coalition Calendar


Illinois Women March on Springfield

The march is in the spirit of the January 21 women's marches around the world, and just as those events attracted a wide diversity of people, the Springfield event is expected to bring together people across a range of inter-connected issues.

April 25, 2017 is planned as a day for advocacy, lobbying and a large rally in support of issues that support a progressive agenda. We are focused on advocating for specific legislation under consideration in the Spring 2017 Illinois legislative session.

EqualityCon 2017

Registration is now open for EqualityCon 2017, hosted by Equality Illinois Institute, a daylong conference to be held at the State House Inn in Springfield, Illinois on Saturday, May 6.

We're building an agenda with a wide range of session topics and discussions. Topics will include racial justice, transgender equality, safety in schools, finding equality in faith communities, and breaking through barriers on passing state and federal policies.
