At this very moment, a team of over 50 citizen lobbyists from across Florida are working the halls of the capitol and telling their stories as part of Equality Florida's 2011 Lobby Days. By sending a message to you state Representative and Senator right now, you'll double the impact our team can have on those who make the laws that effect our lives.
Write to your lawmaker right now and ask them to take a stand against discrimination. Ask them to sponsor a critical bill that would help make Florida a fair place to work and live.
The Florida Competitive Workforce Act (HB 361 by Randolph and SB 346 by Rich) - This bill would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the state law that already protects people in employment and housing based on race, religion, sex, age and disability.
Nothing makes a bigger difference in building support for this important legislation than lawmakers hearing directly from voters. We know not everyone can make it to Lobby Days in person. But, you can still have an impact.
With just a little information from you, we can tell you who you Representative and Senator are, and we'll provide you editable text that you can personalize or send as is.
We want everyone to participate. But, if you, a friend or a family member have experienced discrimination on the job, in trying to rent or purchase a home, we especially need you to share your story with your legislators.
