Taking it to the voting booth

Today the Pennsylvania legislature will close another session without moving legislation to end legal discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in spite of two years of intense grassroots lobbying, serious negotiation, and support from both sides of the aisle.

People are still shocked to learn that there are no state or federal protections from discrimination at work, in housing, or in business services for gay and transgender people, and once again after more than a decade of consideration of this issue, another session will end without passing LGBT nondiscrimination legislation.

That’s why we are taking it directly to the voting booth this November to elect champions for progress on LGBT equality.

Pledge to vote for progress here.

Working in partnership with For Pennsylvania’s Future, Equality Pennsylvania will knock on nearly 200,000 doors and call tens of thousands of voters this year to remind them what is at stake in this election. We need equality champions in office if we want to continue to advance LGBT equality.

While there has been considerable progress for the LGBT community in recent years with marriage equality, many of the candidates who are running for office right now want to turn that progress back. And—the LGBT community is still waiting for basic discrimination protections that will only be passed by committed LGBT equality champions.

We need you to pledge your vote here to make sure that we can continue the progress we have made—and that we have the right people to champion that progress.

Pledging your vote is the first step to making sure we are on the path to full equality.
