Equality Illinois’ expanded statewide strategy takes shape this week with the appointment of Peoria native Marcus Fogliano as the organization’s Central Illinois-based field fellow and the opening of the new Equality Illinois Springfield field office.

The office, at 601 W. Monroe Street in Springfield, will be the Central Illinois base for the state’s oldest and largest advocacy organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Illinoisans. Its opening on Thursday, October 15 will be celebrated at a reception for Central Illinois officials and LGBT and allied advocates.

The expanded statewide strategy of Equality Illinois strives to more comprehensively serve ‪‎LGBT Illinoisans in those parts of the state where stronger connections to policy, education, advocacy and support services are needed to ensure full equality.
