Equality Illinois' LGBTQ Advocacy Day will take place all day on Wed., April 11, at the State Capitol, 401 S. 2nd St., Springfield.
According to the event's webpage, "One of [Equality Illinois'] priority issues will be the Inclusive Curriculum Bill, SB 3249, an initiative of Equality Illinois and the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance to teach students the historical events and contributions by LGBTQ people. An LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum can also have a positive affect on students' self-image and make their peers more accepting."
The bus will depart from Equality Illinois, 16 N. Wabash Ave., at 6 a.m., and from Affinity Community Services, 2850 S. Wabash Ave., to travel to Springfield. Once in Springfield, there will be lunch/advocacy training, meetings with legislators and public officials, and a closing event/reception at Springfield's Red Roof State House Inn. The bus will depart Springfield at 5 p.m.
