Marriage Equality Advocates to Rally in Chicago Today on Eve of Seventh Circuit Arguments
Midwestern same-sex couples, LGBT supporters, and faith leaders will rally in the Chicago Federal Plaza this afternoon on the eve of marriage cases before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals tomorrow. Illinois state Rep. Greg Harris, author of the new Illinois marriage equality law, will kick off the rally and welcome the plaintiffs in the cases which center on marriage bans in Indiana and Wisconsin. The three-judge panel will be announced in the morning.

Last month, the Seventh Circuit ruled that the state of Indiana must recognize the marriage of a terminally ill lesbian.
