Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

Equal Pay Act Race

Abstract

Amends the Equal Pay Act of 2003. Expands discrimination protection from applying to only African American employees to applying to all employees belonging to a protected class that is based on race, color, national origin, or ancestry. Provides exemptions for payments made under a seniority system, a merit system, a system that measures earnings by quantity or quality of production, and a differential based on any factor other than race, color, national origin, or ancestry, or another factor that would constitute unlawful discrimination under the Illinois Human Rights Act.
