The ACLU of Illinois filed a sex discrimination charge on behalf of Darolyn Lee, a Chicago woman denied basic contraceptive care and discriminated against by Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago.
One of the main ways the ACLU of Illinois works to protect civil liberties and civil rights is through litigation. Litigation remains one of the fundamental tools with which our adept legal team fights for equality and civil rights throughout the state. This section of our website documents the cases we’re working on now and those we’ve handled in recent years.
