Endorse the Florida Competitive Workforce Bill

The Florida Competitive Workforce bill adds "sexual orientation and gender identity and expression" to Florida's civil rights law that bans discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations.

Take a stand today. Sign on to this letter of support as an individual, organization and/or company and spread the word.

This bill is the result of historic cooperation among LGBT organizations in Florida working together to advance a joint legislative strategy to ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It is a joint effort that I think our whole community can be proud of. Currently, that joint effort includes ACLU of Florida, Equality Florida, Organizations United Together (OUT), ADL, Palm Beach County Human Rights Council, SAVE Dade, Compass and several legislators and individual activists, and in December these groups and others are meeting to further develop cooperative strategy to advance the bill.
