2023 Legislator Awards

On Thursday, December 14th we held our Legislator Awards to honor the Illinois lawmakers who sponsored ACLU led initiatives to protect and advance civil liberties over the past few years.  

The Awards celebrated efforts from 2021-2023 to advance abortion rights, provide updates to schools and education policy, protect youth in the DCFS system, reform our criminal legal system, enhance LGBTQ+ rights, and address emerging issues of technology and privacy. Retired legislators were also honored for their signficant work during their tenure in Springfield.
