Support Equality in Housing and Employment for all North Dakotans!

North Dakota’s non-discrimination bill (SB 2278) has passed the state Senate, and want to thank those of you who contacted your senators about this bill. Now, it's on to the state House of Representatives, where the bill has been assigned to the Human Services Committee.

If passed, SB 2278 will prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Right now, people in North Dakota can be denied housing or refused access to public facilities simply because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Nothing in state law prevents an employer from firing an employee because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

It's time to speak out in favor of equality. Personalize a letter today to your state representative telling him or her to support SB 2278! No one should have to worry about losing their job or being denied a place to live simply because of who they are.
