Florida Representatives Join Faith Leaders to Call on Lawmakers to Pass LGBTQ Protections, Oppose Discriminatory Bills​

Tallahassee, Fla. – On Tuesday, March 3rd at 10:30 a.m. state representatives and faith leaders will come together to call on Florida lawmakers to not go another Legislative Session without protecting LGBTQ Floridians from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations by passing the Competitive Workforce Act. 

Faith leaders will also take a stand in opposition to H.B. 1059 and H.B. 7067 that create discriminatory conditions for LGBTQ youth and students. Florida prohibits discrimination on people based on their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap or marital status, but has not joined other states in protections for sexual orientation and gender identity.

WHEN:

March 3rd, at 10:30 a.m.

WHERE:

Florida Capitol, 4th Floor Rotunda, House of Representatives side

WHO:

Rep. Jennifer Webb, H.D. 69, Gulfport, FL
