Bus Trip to Springfield to Advocate for Women's Issues
ROCKFORD, Ill. – Local residents will travel to Springfield Tuesday to highlight and advocate for women's issues through a bus trip organized by SEIU and state Rep. Litesa Wallace, D-Rockford.
"Women's issues have been at the forefront of debate this legislative session, and I encourage local residents to bring their voices to Springfield," Wallace said. "Whether it's ensuring access to healthcare or making sure equal pay is the law, we need to make certain that lawmakers on both sides of the aisle recognize that these issues are priorities that need to be addressed."
Tuesday will mark the "Women's March on Springfield," which aims to unify women throughout the state in the fight for rights for women and other marginalized groups. The event will include a march through streets in Springfield, and end with a rally near the Capitol. Wallace has introduced legislation this session supported by women's rights advocates, including a bill to provide for feminine hygiene products in schools and a measure to restore funding for domestic violence shelters.
For more information, please contact Wallace's constituent service office at 815-987-7433 or at
