Gay Rights Advocacy Coalition Picks New Campaign Director


Marriage equality supporters are launching a $2 million statewide campaign to approve same-sex marriage in Illinois.

Illinois Unites for Marriage is a coalition representing gay rights, civil rights and political groups. The group says it will place 15 field organizers throughout the state to engage supporters, following legislative failure to enact same-sex marriage in Illinois during the last session. Illinois Public Radio's Amanda Vinicky talks with John Kohlhepp, who is the newly-tapped campaign director for Illinois Unites for Marriage.
