Members of the Emerging Leaders Circle are rising leaders 35 years of age & under who help support our LGBTQ civil rights efforts by securing a $600 annual membership ($50 per month). Membership benefits include recognition in our Annual Report and Gala Program Book, advanced notice of upcoming events, and a complimentary ticket to our Pre-Pride Parade Reception. Your support goes directly toward programs like our EqualityCON, police and correctional officer trainings, engagement with faith leaders to create welcoming spaces, and community events across the state. These programs empower the LGBTQ community and help us earn new allies in our work. Make a contribution today so that we can continue our education outreach efforts around the state. We could not host events, such as our large statewide convening held in the state's capitol, EqualityCon, without your support of Equality Illinois Institute. We seek for your help to maintain our rigorous program schedule in every corner of Illinois throughout the year. If we are visible, we are POWERFUL.
