Illinois State Capitol, Springfield
The Illinois Women March on Springfield brings women and their allies together in Springfield on April 25, 2017. Join NCJW in Springfield for a day for advocacy, lobbying and a large rally in support of issues that support a progressive agenda. We are focused on advocating for specific legislation under consideration in the Spring 2017 Illinois legislative session. The progressive agenda includes a focus on the Women’s Agenda, the People’s Agenda of labor issues, plus issues including immigration, homelessness, criminal legal reform, the environment, LGBTQ, gun safety, health, economics and passing a responsible budget in Illinois. NCJW hopes to have a large contingent attending the March.
