Our work with the Illinois legislature is a critical way that we advance civil liberties in our state, and we spend a significant amount of time engaging in the legislative process each year.

We aim to support bills that strengthen our rights guaranteed under the Constitution and defeat bills that threaten them. See below for information about our legislative efforts.
