Session Adjourned: Update on Sex Ed Legislation

Yesterday, the Illinois House adjourned for the Spring Session. HB 3027 was not called for a full vote.  The campaign only had six days to get the message out about comprehensive sex education in the Illinois House of Representatives. As a result, we were unable to lobby the full House, and the bill sponsor decided to not call for a vote.

PPIL will be working on this legislation over the summer and into the fall Veto Session. Staff, volunteers, supporters and partner organizations worked very hard and we are so pleased with the progress that was made. We want to thank all of our supporters for their efforts and we look forward to continuing the fight for quality sex education in Illinois!

There is still so much work to be done and we are looking for your help throughout the summer.  Are you able to attend an in-district meeting with your legislator?  Can you send a letter to your legislator or to a local paper?  Contact us at volunteer@ppil.org to learn more.  We are always in need of passionate supporters who are willing to get involved
