Pushing for ENDA and Pride in Illinois

IllinoisHRC is currently working in Congressman Kinzinger’s district in Illinois to activate people to let him know they support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). As part of that work, we are helping to revitalize Rockford Pride. We had another planning meeting for our Pride celebration scheduled for July 18th to 20th and things are shaping up great. However, we are still looking for folks to get involved in the planning process with us.

We will be holding further planning meetings on the following dates:

Monday July 7th: 6PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rockford

Monday July 14th: 6PM at the United Universalist Church of Rockford

We are still looking for help in a couple of areas:

  1. We will be canvassing every Friday at City Market over the coming weeks to let people know about Rockford Pride and ENDA.
  2. We are still looking for more vendors for our Pride Picnic on the 20th. Know somebody who sells awesome things? Let them know.
  3. We will need volunteers for the entire weekend. This includes folks that want to come to our rally for ENDA as well as people that can help with our picnic.

If you are interested in helping out in either of these capacities please send an e-mail to rockfordpride@gmail.com or call Logan at 860.578.7319.
