The Kansas State Legislature announced a new bill that would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the state’s nondiscrimination laws. The best part – more than 55 state lawmakers from both parties have already voiced their support for the bill and LGBTQ acceptance in Kansas.
But the hard work has just begun. In order for this bill to become law, more elected leaders must affirm their support for this bill which would protect about 68,000 LGBTQ Kansans from discrimination at their work, in their homes, and across all communities in the state.
Kansans know they have an ally in Governor Laura Kelly, but in order to achieve full acceptance in the state, we must continue to work hard, tell our stories, and help change hearts and minds of lawmakers at the state capitol.
Sign this petition and call on lawmakers to pass this bill that would affirm LGBTQ acceptance all across Kansas.
