Pennsylvania Governor Calls for LGBT Non-Discrimination in ‘State of the State’ AddressBy Adam Polaski • February 12, 2016 • 2:53 pm
This week, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf reiterated that passing LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination protections remains a top priority in the Keystone State. In his “State of the State” address, Gov. Wolf highlighted a number of legislative priorities. Among them, he called for “protections for the LGBT community in housing and the workplace.”
With these protections, Gov. Wolf explained, “we can help our Commonwealth fulfill the promise of equal opportunity and economic security for all.”
Gov. Wolf joins several other governors – including the governor of Missouri – in including LGBT non-discrimination in their “State of the State” addresses in 2016.
Freedom for All Americans is working with Pennsylvania Competes, a bipartisan coalition of nearly 1,000 businesses who know that LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination protections statewide are not only the right thing to pass for the state – but they also make smart business sense.
Just last week, the coalition from Pennsylvania Competes soared to nearly 1,000 members, multiplying in size from when the coalition formed in 2015. Learn more about this work here.
