EqualityCon 2016

 

EqualityCon 2016, hosted by Equality Illinois Institute, on May 13-14, 2016 at the University of Illinois at Chicago, brought together advocates and experts to discuss the state of LGBT issues and how we can advance the cause UNTIL WE’RE ALL EQUAL.

We discussed issues ranging from the federal Equality Act with chief sponsor Rep. David Cicilline and Rep. Jan Schakowsky to employment, adoption, gender diversity, racial justice, trans advocacy, faith, the rural experience and aging.

Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island was the opening keynote speaker discussing his sponsorship of the federal Equality Act. Click below to watch his remarks.
