2021 Virtual LGBTQ Advocacy Day

Community Event Take Action | March 8, 2021

With the Illinois legislative session in full swing, we want to invite you to SHOW UP! and SPEAK UP! for LGBTQ equality and inclusion during the 2021 Virtual LGBTQ Advocacy Day on May 12, 2021.

While LGBTQ Advocacy Day will look different this year, we must still SHOW UP! and SPEAK UP! to make sure that our state continues to demonstrate its values of being fully equal and inclusive. This is a great opportunity to virtually engage with fellow supporters of LGBTQ equality and let your voice be heard on issues that affect us all, such as the REACH Act (HB 1736) and HIV Decriminalization Bill (SB 655).

Individuals who register will participate in a virtual lunch program and virtual early evening reception and be asked to take 5-6 civic actions throughout the day (30 seconds each).

Register for the 2021 Virtual LGBTQ Advocacy Day TODAY!
