Lutheran Day 2018

Our morning activities will begin in the auditorium of the Howlett Building, 501 S. 2nd St., Springfield, IL 62701.

Lutheran Day is on May 8 this year. As in previous years, advocates from across the state will gather to study, pray, and take action for equality amongst Illinois residents.

We are faith-based social service organizations or human care organizations. We are men and women from Lutheran congregations all over Illinois. We are dedicated staff, as well as committed supporters of the people we serve. We are Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and none of the above.

We are people of good will, standing together to exercise our vocation to speak out for justice, compassion, and equality for all people.

Thank you for joining us in raising your voice, and being counted for the sake of God’s children, youth, women, and men in need of special care.
