Success: The LGBTQ Community is Protected from Housing Discrimination

Target: President Joe Biden

Goal: Applaud federal government for expanding anti-discrimination laws to protect the LGBTQ community.

The LGBTQ community is now protected from discrimination in housing. For decades, LGBTQ individuals and couples could be denied housing with no legal recourse to turn to. The Biden Administration has since expanded anti-discrimination rules to protect them from this cruelty.

Unfortunately, discrimination has been commonplace across housing in the United States, as this ForceChange petition outlines. Under an executive order, President Joe Biden made good on a 2020 Supreme Court ruling that changed the legal definition of “sex discrimination” in employment to include the LGBTQ community. Under this expansion, the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Fair Housing Act also protects the LGBTQ community from being denied housing.

This is a major step that will make the right to housing possible for millions. Sign the petition to thank the Biden Administration for this important step.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Biden,

Thank you for expanding anti-discrimination laws in housing to include protections for the LGBTQ community. For decades, LGBTQ individuals and couples have been denied housing simply due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. They’ve had no legal resource to turn to for protection.

With your action, housing is now within reach for millions of Americans. Thank you for protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
