Press Releases

Freedom for All Americans is a campaign initiative dedicated to ensuring that every American, regardless of where they live, is protected under the law from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression — without allowing overly broad and harmful religious exemptions that will encourage employers, business owners or others to choose to disregard those protections.
