By signing our pledge, you are standing up for couples like Mercedes and Theresa from Chicago, whose relationship was questioned during a medical emergency with their son. You are demanding dignity for same-sex couples like Bert and Lee from Springfield, together for 27 years, or Jim and Patrick from Chicago, together almost 50 years. You are telling the entire state of Illinois: it’s just time for same-sex couples to be treated equally.

In 2011, the Illinois State Legislature enacted civil unions for same-sex couples – an important step, but one that has not delivered on the promise of equality and left these couples and their families vulnerable to discrimination.
