Many people are surprised to learn that in Pennsylvania, LGBT people can be fired, denied a mortgage, or refused service at a hotel, library, or hospital because of why they are or who they love.
At Equality Pennsylvania, we think it’s time for that to change. That’s why we’re working every day for a statewide law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression in matters of employment, housing, and business services.
Today, thousands of Pennsylvanians are engaged in community organizing to continue building momentum toward passing nondiscrimination policies at the state and local level. At Equality Pennsylvania, we’re committed to this work until LGBT people are fully protected from discrimination under the law.
