Conservatives Speak Out Against Wave of Anti-LGBTQ State Legislative BillsMarch 17, 2022 • 4:27 pm
March 17, 2022 – Conservatives Against Discrimination issued the following statement in response to a wave of recent anti-LGBTQ bills making their way through state legislatures across America:
The recent wave of anti-LGBTQ bills nationwide is dangerous and further underscores the need for Congress to move swiftly in passing federal nondiscrimination protections. The inherent American values of freedom, liberty and equality are being placed in jeopardy by activist legislation that usurps local control and the very foundations of families and workplace fairness. These actions by state lawmakers also exacerbate the already inadequate, inefficient and confusing patchwork of nondiscrimination laws which presents challenges to American businesses. Passage of unambiguous nondiscrimination protections through Congress will help ensure job creators have certainty and that all Americans can live their lives free of government interference to achieve the American Dream.
Freedom for All Americans is the bipartisan campaign to secure full nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people nationwide. Our work brings together Republicans and Democrats, businesses large and small, people of faith, and allies from all walks of life to make the case for comprehensive nondiscrimination protections that ensure everyone is treated fairly and equally.
