Sign the petition to end discrimination

We don’t need to remind you of the multiple examples of discrimination that have made the news in Pennsylvania in the last few weeks. However, the majority of the discrimination that goes on in the state goes unreported. And the effect that fear of discrimination has on people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community is profound.

How many times do people keep their marriages secret for fear of losing a job? Or, put off a career move for fear that their family won’t be accepted in a new place? No one should be turned away simply because of who they are.

We need to make sure that our state legislators know that the time has come to end discrimination now. I know you get asked to sign a lot of petitions, but this one could really make a difference.

Sign the petition to the state legislature here.

Polls show that 68% of voters in Pennsylvania agree that no one should be discriminated against for being gay or transgender,  AND voters agree that there should be a law to protect people from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. But our state legislature has been considering passing that law for more than ten years. We need to show our state legislators that we have the support now!

We are making calls, writing letters, meeting legislators in person, but we can still do more.

We created this petition to show the extensive support for nondiscrimination across the state. And we want to get thousands of signatures to demonstrate the people of Pennsylvania are ready to make sure that everyone is treated fairly. If we keep the drumbeat going, we will win in the end!

Sign and share the petition today to make sure everyone knows how much support we have on this critical issue.
