STOP the proposed Hate Campaign For Illinois

Anti-gay forces in Illinois are trying to put a bigoted, anti-equal marriage referendum on the November ballot.

While the referendum would be advisory, it's real aim is to scapegoat Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans people -- to raise the climate of hate in Illinois and set back acceptance of LGBT people.

History has shown that referenda like this not only raise hate, they promote violence. In the year following passage of Colorado's Amendment 2, for example, anti-LGBT violence surged 129% over the previous year.

YOUR Help is URGENTLY Needed NOW!!

Fortunately, the promoters of Illinois's amendment have probably failed to collect enough petition signers, but we need YOUR HELP in order to prove this to Illinois's election authorities.

Volunteers are urgently needed NOW, during weekdays, evenings and weekends -- no experience necessary.

To volunteer, please contact the Gay Liberation Network at 773.878.3697, 773.209.1187 or LGBTliberation@aol.com
