NEWS: Panel Discussion on Civil Unions set for Oct. 18

With a bill pending in the Illinois State Assembly and restrictive ballot measures set for November in California, Florida and Arizona, civil unions - and same-sex marriage - are probably the hottest gay rights issue at the moment. To help give some perspective and information on what is at stake and how you can help, PFLAG Oak Park is sponsoring a Civil Unions Panel discussion on Saturday October 18 from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m. Panel speakers will include Rick Garcia of Equality Illinois and Marty Scott, Pastor, Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church, as well as other possible panelists to be determined.

The panel will be held at First United Church, at 848 Lake Street in downtown Oak Park. For more information, contact PFLAG Oak Park.
