Pennsylvania: Stop Discriminating Against the LGBTQ Community

Target: State Representative Joseph A. Petrarca, Democratic Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Pennsylvania

Goal: End discriminatory practices against members of the LGBTQ community.

Pennsylvania is allowing employers to discriminate against members of the LGBTQ community. While other states have implemented protections that prevent individuals from being fired or evicted due to their sexual orientation or gender identity, Pennsylvania has not.

In the Human Rights Campaign’s 2017 report on LGBTQ equality, Pennsylvania was given a bottom score. Bills have been proposed in the state assembly to outlaw discrimination, but none have been passed.

Sign the petition to demand that state lawmakers finally pass a bill that would grant equal rights to the LGBTQ community. It is time for all individuals, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, to live lives in which they are safe from discrimination.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Representative Petrarca,

For too long, members of the LGBTQ community have been denied equal rights. They can be fired or evicted simply due to their gender identity or sexual orientation. Despite laws being debated in the state assembly to protect the LGBTQ community, none have been passed.

The LGBTQ community has waited too long to be treated fairly. I demand that you and other lawmakers act now to protect them from discrimination.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    BEING GAY IS WRONG! ANYONE, AND I MEAN ANYONE, WHO SAYS GOD MADE THEM THIS WAY, IS WRONG! SATAN, THE DEVIL PLANTED THAT EVIL SEED IN THEIR MISGUIDED HEAD. JESUS SAID WE MUST LOVE ONE ANOTHER, DID NOT SAY WE ARE FORCED TO ACCEPT THEIR IMMORAL, SINFUL LIFESTYLES. THIS IS NOT A BLESSING FROM GOD! BUT, A CURSE FROM THE DEVIL. IF YOU’RE GAY OR SUPPORT ORT THEM, YOU ARE DEVIL WORSHIPPERS!
