Dear Representative Ives,
We, your constituents, are writing about an issue of fairness and equality for all families in Illinois.
It is unfair and unjust to deny families and couples the legal protections and dignities they deserve based on sexual orientation, and I strongly support the Illinois Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act. Marriage strengthens relationships, fosters stability and makes families stronger.
Like all Illinoisans, gay and lesbian couples have the same values of love, commitment and the desire to build a strong family.
Please support marriage equality by voting yes on the Illinois Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act. The time is now! Thank you for your consideration.
