Welcome to Equal Marriage Illinois

EMI is a growing community of Illinoisans - all over the state - who are calling for an end to the exclusion of gay and lesbian families from full marriage equality in the Land of Lincoln. Illinois' tradition of fairness for all citizens demands that the state government treat all families equally. Will you join us? You can start by signing the pledge at our main site.
