About the Campaign

DHR and Bicentennial logo

The Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) is proud to invite Illinois Local Government Entities to join the "Commit to Fairness and Equality" Campaign. As we celebrate the state's Bicentennial, December 3, 2018, government entities such as municipalities, counties, public universities and community colleges have the opportunity to demonstrate their public commitment to the core values of fairness and equality.

By joining the Campaign leaders throughout the State can publicly proclaim Fairness and Equality for all people who live, work, study, play or worship in their communities.
