Equality Illinois is honored to have received with Kirkland & Ellis LLP the Impact Award from the TrustLaw Foundation, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono legal program.

The award celebrates our partnership with the law firm on legal research that informed our advocacy for legislation sponsored by Rep. Kelly Cassidy & Sen. Daniel Biss that banned conversion therapy in Illinois.

During the legislative process, we were privileged to partner with leading medical and mental health organizations as well as the The National Center for Lesbian Rights, the ACLU of Illinois, Lambda Legal and many others on this effort! Thank you, TrustLaw, for your help and for this recognition.
