Legislative

The Pennsylvania legislature has several pending bills which could dramatically improve the lives of the LGBTQ community. However, our legislators in Harrisburg are very slow to pass the bills and send them to the Governor. Click on the button below to see just some of the pending bills, and to click on the button to find your legislator. Call, email, or write to your legislators and tell them to pass these bills.

Petitions

Send a message to the Pennsylvania legislature about the Fairness Act. We demand to be treated equally under the law whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. Furthermore, we need protection from discrimination for housing, employment, and all public accommodations. Our lives matter, and we must fight to win our rights. Sign today.
