Protect All Illinois Couples - Support the Freedom to Marry
Tuesday, Sep 24, 2013

Across Illinois, same-sex couples lack the ability to protect the one they love through the security of marriage. SB10 – the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act – can change that.
Tell lawmakers it’s time for the freedom to marry in Illinois. Take action at IllinoisUnites.org.
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, giving legally married same-sex couples access to more than 1,000 federal protections. But that won’t help same-sex couples in Illinois, who still occupy a second-class legal status that denies them access to these protections.
More and more Illinoisans believe gays and lesbians should be able to marry, share a lifetime commitment, and care for their families through the stability of marriage. If two people want to share a lifetime of commitment and responsibility, who are we to stand in their way?
Tell our Representatives it’s time to treat all Illinois families with fairness and respect. Urge the Illinois House to pass the freedom to marry this year. Call your legislator and tell them to vote Yes on SB10 by clicking here.
