The March on Springfield for Marriage Equality will take place on October 22, 2013, the scheduled first day of the fall veto session of the Illinois State Legislature. The “March on Springfield” is part of a broad grassroots strategy to secure final passage of Senate Bill 10, the “Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act,” already approved by the Illinois Senate. Once adopted, Illinois will become the 14th state plus the District of Columbia, to treat all of its citizens equally under state marriage laws and to provide equal access to federal marriage benefits.
