Mayors Across the Country: Take a Stand Against Anti-LGBT Discrimination

As Mayors, we have the special responsibility to protect the rights and safety of our residents and to advancing policies that move our communities and our country forward. Our communities are safer, more welcoming and more economically vibrant when everyone is treated fairly and equally under the law. For these reasons, we support inclusive nondiscrimination laws that provide explicit protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals in housing, employment and public accommodations.

We invite all mayors to take a stand below with the overwhelming majority of Americans who support comprehensive nondiscrimination policies and urge our state and federal leaders to join in support of equal treatment for all our citizens. Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination is a program of Freedom for All Americans, the bipartisan campaign to win comprehensive LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination protections nationwide.
