Senate Bill 2494 recently passed out of the state senate and the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois needs your help!

SB 2494, sponsored by Senator James Meeks, would allow the use of public taxpayer payments to fund private religious schools, by means of tuition vouchers to certain parents.

This means those schools could use the money for the purchase of religious textbooks, the construction of worship space, or the hiring of religious teachers.
