Thank Senator Barickman for Voting for Equality
On February 14, 2013, the Illinois Senate voted 31-24-2 to pass Senate Bill 10: The Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act.
Senator Jason Barickman was the lone Republican to vote YES that day. He is now facing nasty attacks from the far right and Christian conservatives for castng this well-reasoned, courageous vote for fairness for all families and equal treatment under the law for every Illinoisan regardless of their sexual orientation.
