Help Us Pass the Inclusive Curriculum Bill!
After passing through the Illinois State Senate last session, the bill was not called for a vote in the House. This legislative session, the bill has already passed the House. The bill is now in the Senate, where it must pass prior to being signed by the Governor.
We see this mandate playing a large role in improving school climates. The more the contributions of LGBTQ Illinoisans and Americans are recognized, the safer students can feel in school, and the more they can see themselves succeed across fields and disciplines.
We ask that you please contact your State Representatives and State Senators voicing support for the bill. If you’d like to contact your State Rep or State Senator electronically, please fill out this form: https://act.myngp.com/Forms/6283030547321260800
The Alliance will also be participating in Equality Illinois’ LGBTQ+ Advocacy Day on May 15, 2019. We will be traveling to Springfield to lobby elected officials to pass the Inclusive Curriculum Bill, as well as other bills.
