Illinois serves as a safe haven for women's healthcare in the midwest and we would like to see that continue. We are joining the efforts of local and national organizations to ensure the basic rights of women and thus, all citizens, are protected.
Women's rights advocacy
We keep up with legislation presented before the Illinois House and Senate and connect with our representatives via phone calls, town halls, and witness slips. House Bill 40 is expected to come to vote in the Illinois house very soon. This bill strikes a dangerous "trigger" provision in the Illinois abortion law and affirms that Illinois will not go back to the pre-Roe days of illegal abortion. You can find information about supporting HB 40 in the News section of the website.
We have worked with the ACLU and Planned Parenthood to vocalize our support for a progressive women's agenda. We have compiled action alerts with specific instructions on how to fight for women's healthcare in Illinois. We are excited to spread the word about the Chicago Equal Payday Rally and the Illinois Women Moving Forward Advocacy Day.
Community group involvement
We work with other groups to ensure a future where women have economic and social equality. Our efforts include fundraising, volunteering, and championing the important work being done by these groups.
