Baton Rouge: Let's Protect Our LGBTQ Neighbors from Discrimination!
Right now federal law protects all of us from discrimination based on certain factors like race, sex and religion, but no federal protections exist to protect LGBTQ people. Some states have these protections, but not Louisiana.
We can, however, enact these protections locally. Shreveport and New Orleans already have LGBTQ-inclusive local laws, as do more than 200 cities and towns across the country. We want Baton Rouge to be next!
Join our movement by contacting East Baton Rouge Metro Council members and urging them to support an LGBTQ-inclusive local nondiscrimination ordinance.
